It is the mission of the Grace Congregational Church (GCC) Usher Department to serve as the door-keepers, greeting all who enter, showing the love of Jesus the Christ through action.
Responsibilities of Our Mission (Purpose/Vision)
The GCC Ushers Department provides general care of our sanctuary and assists all people in ultimately receiving the Lord. Ushers are the visible ministers who provide personal service and courtesies to congregants before, during and after service.
Duties of an Usher
The Usher’s duties include welcoming, seating, helping to make people comfortable, handing out bulletins/programs, providing assistance with special needs and emergencies. Ushers assist and serve the pastors, elders, and guest ministry. Ushers also keep order at the entrance and in the sanctuary. Through effective execution of the Ushers duties, other’s experiences in our worship services will be enhanced.
As the front-line custodians of the church, Ushers also straighten and organize the sanctuary and foyer after service, ensuring that everything is in order upon leaving the facility. Being an Usher is not simply a job but a gift of service.
