The church is “a kingdom of priests” (I Peter 2:9). As an usher, you are a minister of hospitality and caring in the church.
When people come to church they are sometimes burdened, sad or discouraged. Each person, member or newcomer, comes with the hope that the Service will be an experience of uplift and inspiration, a time of renewal and celebration. The Usher Ministry helps to enhance the worship experience by providing a warm and welcome environment for our members and guests by:
Graciously greeting worshippers, making every attempt to help them feel welcome and at ease.
Ensuring all are seated comfortably
Distribute materials related to the service/meeting such as bulletins, handouts, etc.
Receive Tithes & Offerings
Maintain alertness for any emergency that may arise, relieving the need or contacting the person(s) needed to provide the proper assistance
Direct individuals out of the service/meeting in an orderly fashion
Ensures order in and around the church
