Showing God’s Love Through Hospitality

May 15, 2024 | Written by Mary Hopper

“We’re meeting some friends, could you tell us how to get to the balcony?”

“It’s our first time here and we’re wondering what you have available for our kids.”

“I’ve never been to church before. I drive by here every day and figured I should check you guys out.”

“I’m new in town, been to a few churches, but haven’t really found a place that seems right for me.”

“Do you have any more of that French vanilla creamer?”

Okay, we do get that last one a lot, but while coffee and donuts make for a nice Sunday morning routine, they’re not the only things the hospitality team thinks about here at Pulpit  Rock Church. Helping first-timers and regulars alike feel known and connect with others is at the heart of everything we do. Whether you’re greeted at the entrance by a smiling face, walked to the nursery, served an ice-cold frappe, or engaged in conversation, the hospitality team hopes you feel welcomed.

You’ll see greeters at the east and west entrances prior to each service, and baristas at the coffee bar in the Gathering Place. We’re happy to answer your questions or direct you to someone who can. And we make some pretty good coffee drinks, too. If you’re interested in welcoming others with us, we would love to have you join our team! No experience required—even at the coffee bar. Anyone who has attended for years or even weeks can send a message to

Mary at or 719.216.3067.

We hope you find connection here and come to see Pulpit Rock as your church home!

A Night of Ice Cream and Dancing

When our small group decided to do a service project together, we talked through the different things each of us had to offer. One of the couples on our small group used to teach East Coast Swing lessons to college students. My husband and I own an ice cream store in town. We thought, ‘There must be someone out there who needs ice cream and dancing!’
