BE THE CHURCH, one card at a time…
Soon Northstar will experience a lot of families, students, and young professionals visiting our service for the first time. Each of these visitors will receive a personal hand written note and a gift card for some free frozen yogurt. These “welcome cards” are part of a larger commitment of the church to help people know that God cares about them and our church does too.
How it works
We need more “card writers!” It’s a wonderful way to be the church and extend our welcome.
- We will supply you with Northstar-branded thank you cards and Frosty Parrot gift cards.
- You’ll be assigned a few names to write cards to on Monday of each week.
- We ask that you get them in the mail no later than Wednesday of that week.
That’s it! Easy peasy!
A Vessel God Can Use
When asked why she writes welcome cards Margery Mullins, one of Northstar’s Welcome Card champions, said:
“I decided to volunteer for this ministry because I have always enjoyed writing cards and messages, and praying for people. Because of my job and personal situations, this was a ministry I could do! A few times a month I am sent an email showing visitors to Northstar Church along with their addresses. I was shown an example of what to write, just saying thank you for visiting the church, hope it was welcoming, enjoy the Frosty Parrot card, etc. And I just take it from there. I usually try to add something unique to each card so the recipient doesn’t feel like the note is a “carbon copy”, and I always try to write neatly so they don’t think I am in a hurry! One church visitor even sent me a thank you note! I enjoy this ministry because I can encourage people and it makes me feel like a vessel God CAN use!”
