  • First Encounter Ministry

    The goal of our teams is to work together to provide an environment where someone who has never been to Tates Creek will feel like they are among friends as soon as they step foot on the church grounds and walk through our doors! 
    There are many opportunities for service in one or more of the First Encounter Ministry Teams.  Anyone who likes people can get involved in one of the following areas of service:

    • Greeters - Welcome everyone who comes through our doors.  Contact - Mike Mirre (859)224-4919.
    • Host and Hostesses - Our first-time guests and some of the newest attenders will likely not know their way around our facility.  Our hosts and hostesses are there to help them to become familiar with our facility, our Sunday School classes and, when appropriate, how their children can enjoy their visit as well.  Contact - Mary Mirre, 859-224-4919.
    • Information Center - Volunteers are there to answer any questions and to provide our guests and members with published information that will help them to become more acquainted with Tates Creek.
