What is Biblical Hospitality?

The Bible commands us, as followers of Christ, to show hospitality to strangers (Hebrews 13:2), and to one another (1 Peter 4:9). Hospitality is the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers. In the New Testament, the Greek word translated “hospitality” literally means “love of strangers.” Hospitality is a virtue that is both commanded and commended throughout Scripture.

As followers of Christ, we emulate His love and compassion when we show hospitality, not only to fellow Christians, but even more so to strangers and the less fortunate.

How can I serve on the Hospitality Team?

Our Hospitality ministry seeks to show kindness and generosity through food preparation, coffee and snacks, and general attention to details of our environment that can help people feel welcomed and comfortable.  We seek to welcome others and use our resources to bless them in a way that reflects the Gospel and with an attitude of generosity and joy.
