One thing is sure: people never get a second chance at a first impression! A 2016 Harvard Study reports that most of us make two snap judgments every time we meet someone. Can I trust this person? Can I respect this person? If we cannot answer, “yes” to both questions, we will most likely move on and look for other relationships. From the moment people pull into the parking lot at Cornerstone, they’re making decisions about us that influence their decision to come back.

 

That’s why we have a great ministry team called FIT — First Impressions Teams

 

Together, our FIT ministry is committed to continually improve and provide warm, friendly first impressions in the areas of:

 

Parking  Team leader:   Blake Eckerle

Greeters  Team leaders:  Jarret Perry; Kent and Sharon Eastman

Information:  Team leader:  Paula Tutterow

Ushers:  Team leader:  Bob Spears

Safety:   Team leader:  George Chekouras

Open & Close:  Team leader:  Bob Carley

 

On March 8, our team leaders met to complete a 15 point assessment of each of our FIT ministries to discover ways to improve what we do and how we do it. FIT only represents approximately 50 people at any given service. What about the other 1500-1600 people attending Cornerstone each weekend? That’s where the rest of us come in!

 

“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” Colossians 4:5-6

 

How’s that for a crash course in making a good first impression? Together, let’s continue to be committed to providing a safe, welcoming environment for the many new guests that God is bringing us. We know you are counting on our FIT ministry—and we are counting on you! Why? Because first impressions count!
