Members of the Usher Team distribute and collect hymnals, welcome folks to the worship service, hand out the Order of Service, circulate the collection plates, count those in attendance, and assist in other tasks. If you would like to volunteer as an usher, click the following button:
Printed copies of a checklist/instructions for ushers are kept on a clipboard on the bookshelf inside the Sanctuary doors. The checklist/instructions (PDF) also are available from these links:
Unless the chairs in the sanctuary have been placed in a special arrangement for a particular worship service (e.g., a circle), ushers should make sure that the chairs are in the standard arrangement according to this diagram.
Ushers should plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before the worship service begins. The usher schedule from May 27 through Sept. 2, 2018 appears below – only one usher is assigned, and that usher will need to recruit another person in attendance to assist with ushering and the offering collection.
The Usher Team is led by Usher/Teller Coordinator Steve Scott. Most team members are assigned to usher on a specific Sunday each month. The team also includes substitutes who will cover fifth Sundays and holiday worship services and can be called on to substitute when a regularly scheduled usher is not available. The coordinator will remind scheduled ushers about their assignments a few days before their scheduled dates and will arrange for a substitute if an usher cannot be available on the scheduled date.
