USHERS MINISTRY

The St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church’s Usher Boards are committed and dedicated for the glorification of God by helping to make the worship service comfortable, peaceful, and safe for the congregants. Their participation is a crucial part of worship because it is one of the most visible ministries in the church. They are entrusted with promoting a sense of welcoming and belonging to all the faithful assembled for worship. They are the first point of contact for the communal celebration of Liturgy.

 

Several of their responsibilities include: 

  • Assist in the seating of members and visitors.

  • Provide care for the needs of the pastor during the service.

  • Attend to the needs of the visiting speaker or guests of honor.

  • Maintain the decorum of the service, according to the church’s tradition.

  • Watch for the safety of the congregation and acting as the line of first response to medical emergencies.

  • Assist in the collection of the offering.  

  • Attend to altar ministry or response ministry as people respond to the sermon’s invitation.
