What is the Right Hand of Fellowship (RHF)?

This takes place on the first Sunday of each month (except August) when we officially welcome new members into the family. On the Sunday that you receive the RHF your name will be called, you will receive a packet that will include a bible, offering envelopes, etc. You will stand in front of the congregation until all the names receiving the RHF have been called. Then Pastor will call for a motion, which will be made to receive you as a new member (simply a formality), motion is carried then our Pastor, our First Lady and a portion of our leadership extend the Right Hand of Fellowship to welcome you into the family of Greater Zion!
