We are extremely grateful for the volunteers who serve as an usher for our congregation. An usher may be a person’s first contact with anyone from our congregation as they come to church. The usher’s smile, warm and friendly greeting may help people be more open to God’s Spirit and thankful for God’s blessings. When people see the usher being of service to them, it may remind them to consider ways that they can be of service in the life of the church.
