Connections Ministry exists to support the mission of Solid Rock by investing in everyone that walks through the doors of the church. We do this through friendly greeters and hospitality hosts, delicious donuts and hot coffee, and informative ushers and guest service hosts. We want to make sure that everyone is greeted (greeters), treated (food and coffee team), directed (hospitality hosts and guest services hosts), and seated (ushers).
