“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
The ministry of ushering is like salt which makes everything more tasteful and which serves as a general preservative against deterioration. A good usher adds a tang of joy to a churchgoer’s Sunday morning experience instead of a dry dullness. Just as salt is silent, inconspicuous, and sometimes completely unnoticed; so are ushers. But they are there in a most powerful way!
A church usher is an officer of the church. Ushers are forerunners, for they prepare the church for the guests by being the first to arrive at the church; they see that the church is in proper condition to receive the members and 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.
The church usher helps the Pastor to make the service a success by putting the congregation in the right frame of mind to receive the message. The usher greets people with a pleasant smile, a warm welcome, and directs them to comfortable seats. He/She also sees to it that perfect order is kept in and around the church at all times during the services (1 Corinthians 14:40).
At Concord Baptist Church, our ushers are top notch and we appreciate all they do.
