My wife and I "viisted" off and on for about 18 months. During that time we tried different things to get someone to greet us. Several times we stood at the visitors' cart which had information about the church. We stood there for about 10 minutes each time. Never did anyone approach us.  During part of the year there is a breakfast held between services in the foyer. On several occasions we arrived well before the brunch was over. Not once did anyone ask us to sit down, let alone greet us and ask if we were new.
