About This Ministry
A Church Usher is an officer of the Church in which he or she serves. The Church Usher helps the Pastor to usher in the Spirit of the Lord by putting the congregation in the right frame of mind to receive the message.
The Usher greets the member and guest with a pleasant smile, a warm welcome, and directs them to comfortable seats.
The Usher also sees to it that perfect order is kept in and around the Church at all times during the service.
Ushers are forerunners. They prepare the Church for worship by being among the first to arrive to make sure the Church is ready to receive guests. They distribute programs, collection envelopes, bibles and fans while meeting the other needs of the congregation.
To greet God’s people (members and guests) with a warm greeting and friendly smile. To give those who come into St. Matthew’s house a feeling of love that starts at the door and extends throughout the service, so that when they depart they will depart feeling blessed that they came into the House of the Lord.
