Ushers & Greeters

"The ministry of greeting in churches today often seems to rank below that of preaching, teaching and music. While that may be true, it’s important to remember that the ministry of greeting is most often the first impression guests get of your church – well before any of the others listed above. And in fact, if a bad impression is made in the greeting stage, a newcomer may completely shut down, regardless of how fantastic the other elements of the church may be.

Greeting is a ministry – one that is becoming more important than ever in today’s experience-oriented culture. The guests coming to your church next Sunday may not understand all the words they will hear, but the warm and caring actions of your greeting team will speak loud and clear. To a person seeking truth and peace, an ounce of kindness is worth a pound of preaching. Christian kindness is a ministry for church greeters who care deeply about people." (Bob Adams, "First Impressions Are Everything for Churches," Church Leader Gazette. 28 June 2009.)


Greeters are located along the various entry points of the church to warmly welcome guests and guide them to points of interest as needed.


Ushers welcome guests to the worship center, hand out bulletins, guide guests to seats as needed, take up the offering, assist in Communion, and at times provide handouts at the end of services.
