Ushers
Ministry Leader: Steve Mershon

For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.  I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

                                                                                                                        Psalms 84:10

Why does St. Augustine Church need this ministry?

Ushers have a direct connection to the greeters, as together they represent the first opportunity to reflect our caring for one another.

What do team members do?

  • Be the second tier of greeting

  • Count the number in attendance

  • Assist those in need during the service

  • Tidy sanctuary after service

  • Ensure newcomers receive orientation they need to various facilities: restrooms, Sunday School, nursery, etc.

  • Help congregations receive communion in an orderly manner

  • Collect the offering and place it in the safe, after the service

Suggested Skills:

  • Attention to detail

  • Friendly, hospitable personality

Time required:

  • Arrive 20 minutes early, serve during the service, and 20 minutes after assigned services

Will I work alone or as part of a team?

  • At least four ushers needed for the 10 a.m. service
