USHERS for worship services provide an invaluable service. In many ways, ushers are the “face” of the church. It is important that an usher be friendly, honest, and willing to serve. It is an honorable position in the church, requiring integrity, cordiality, and wisdom. Ushering requires a true love for the people of the church and a desire to promote an atmosphere of reverence and worship in the house of God.   Click here to learn more about the role of our ushers. Please contact Coordinator Earl Cole to express your interest and obtain more information.

GREETERS for worship services, along with the ushers, are the first ones people see when they   arrive.  They shouldn’t be too informal, as visitors will partly form their impression of the church by how they are greeted. Duties include checking the narthex for cleanliness and tidiness, locating bulletins, unlocking and opening doors and familiarity with answers to common questions like “where is the restroom?”  They are cordial, friendly people who greet everyone with a smile (by name if you have met them) and always greet the children, too.  Click here to learn more about the role of our greeters. Please contact Coordinator Le Viksten  to express your interest and obtain more information.
