Theme

We are a team of ordinary individuals working together as

"doorkeepers in the House of God."  ( Ps. 84.10)

 

Background

Ushers are forerunners, for they prepare the Church for the guests by being the first to arrive at the church; they receive the order of the day from the Pastor; they see that the Church is in proper condition to receive the guests; they see that hymnals, fans, church literature, collection envelopes, and any other items that are to be distributed to the congregation are in their proper places. Church ushers are missionaries for the Church for they perpetuate the spirit throughout the congregation.

Ushers, or forerunners,  are depicted throughout the Bible. Abraham ushered Faithfulness into the world (Gen. 22). Moses ushered the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt into the promise land. The Star of Bethlehem ushered the wise men of the East to the place where Christ was born. John the Baptist, forerunner for Christ,  prepared the way. He was the voice crying in the wilderness. (John 1:6-13).

Training is a very important part of our organization. To be a good usher, you must be trained. A few teaching techniques include knowing your Church's program, being polite, courteous and alert. The primary factor of our training concept includes the Silent Uniform Method of Ushering.  Members of our organization all learn one silent uniform method of ushering. Every usher who has been trained can usher in the members together in a uniform manner.
