Usher & Greeters Ministry
Our mission is to provide supportive services to the pastor and his wife; to greet and seat the saints and visitors while maintaining an atmosphere of reverence during sacred moments of delivery of the word of God and the call to discipleship.
For a day in thy courts [is] better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. ~ Psalms 84:10
The Usher Ministry serves as the church doorkeepers to ensure that worshipers feel welcome and assist the Pastor by maintaining reverence and order so members and visitors may receive the message. Ushers serve as hosts, servants, and disciplinarians as they greet members, friends, and visitors when they enter the sanctuary, assist worshipers with seating, provide directions, maintain orderly conduct, and control movement and activity in the sanctuary, especially at the doors, throughout service. Ushers are courteous, kind, warm, inviting, and sincere in promoting a glorious worship service of praise and honor to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The Usher Ministry include both women, men, and juniors (17 and younger). Ushers attend conferences and participate as committee members and/or officers in district, state, and national associations to grow spiritually and remain proficient. The ministry offers fellowship with other sisters and brothers in Christ and an opportunity to serve God in His House.
We help the Pastor fulfill the vision God has given him by making those who come through the doors of the church feel at home. Our responsibility is to help all who come to worship feel joy, sincerity, importance, peace and comfort when they enter the doors of the church. It is so important that we help everyone feel welcomed. The Word of God calls us an ambassador of the Most High God to His people. This means that we are His spokespersons on Earth. It is essential to understand as a Greeter, we are the first persons that visitors and members see when they enter the church door, we have to always show the love of Christ. It is our responsibility to let visitors and members know that we humbly appreciate their fellowship with us. We are committed to ensuring guest are served, needs and concerns are met, and that they feel the joy of the Lord upon entering our Worship Service.
Our mission is to support and assist the pastor to have a healthier congregation in mind, body, and spirit. We believe in divine healing, education to enlighten, and giving of self to help the sick.
