Recognizing guests without embarrassing them is important. This is a simple chart that will give you an idea about how you can set up your own chart.
Our auditorium has four sections. Create your own seating chart based on the number of sections and pews in each section.
Whoever is responsible for greeting guests, whether the church is a baby church or a mature congregation will need to get guest information to the pastor early in the service. It is my practice to reference them by name. Many people are embarrassed by being asked to stand and be recognized. In my opinion, this is an overreach and will likely cause some people to not return.
