A church usher is a person who helps ensure a smoothly running church service and who ministers to people in a variety of practical ways. The SPBC ushers greet people as they arrive for the service, assist people with special needs, and collect the offering.
Before the church service starts, the ushers have the responsibility to check the thermostat, check the restrooms, make sure the hymnals are placed correctly, and prepare the bulletins for distribution. As the people arrive, the ushers act as doorkeepers, greeting each person with a smile, shaking hands, and handing out bulletins. They are also available to answer visitors’ questions and extend extra help in seating those who need the assistance.
During the church service, the ushers are responsible to take up the church offering and make sure it is put in the proper place. Ushers have a goal of minimizing distractions during the music and sermon. Ushers stand ready to assist anyone in the congregation who might need help, to aid latecomers in finding a seat, and to inform those in the sanctuary of any urgent matters
