how can a welcoming coordinator help me?

Our Welcoming Coordinator, Tessa Hein, LOVES meeting new people. Her primary goal is to ensure that coming to CUMC is a comfortable and welcoming experience for all. She can help in many ways, such as meeting you during the week to show you around the building before you come on a Sunday, meeting you at the door on Sunday morning to help you find your way, talking to you by email or phone to answer any questions you may have, or any other ways you may find helpful. Please contact her at any time by email, or telephone, 717.249.1512. She'd love to hear from you!
