In Scripture, God often calls His people to protect, shelter, and nourish travelers who find themselves in need. Practicing such hospitality reminded God’s people both of their own wanderings and of His goodness and faithfulness to them when they were in the wilderness. We too, as recipients of God’s mercy and provision, have great cause to invite others into a realm of grace. “Hospitality,” as Henri Nouwen writes, “is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place.” The Imago Dei hospitality ministry serves in the hope of creating such space, aiming in Christ to fill everyday public areas with the presence of God’s kingdom.
Hosts are involved in many aspects of service and assistance on Sundays. Currently, volunteers are needed for all services. Host teams rotate on an every-other week schedule.
