Elaine – Mclean
St. Francis has been my church home for many years and like any home, I want to help make anyone who enters its doors feel welcome and comfortable. Set in beautiful Great Falls, Virginia with a backdrop of mature trees and gardens, St. Francis has a simplicity and warmth that reflects its congregation.
As a greeter, I am able to welcome new visitors into our midst, and I can say hello to old friends as well. So much of our worship is enhanced through the development of personal connections among us, and whenever I put on my greeter's apron, I am met with smiles and ready conversation. Fostering a sense of belonging is so important to the invitation to grow in Christ together. I have made many friends as a result of this ministry.
