The ushers assist people attending church to locate a seat and direct worshipers during Communion and Rite of Healing. Ushers are divided into teams by service time.
Ushers are ministers of hospitality — Always with a smile!
Ushers are dedicated to assist the pastors and participants to an efficient, orderly, Christian experience at every service and event at Hope Lutheran Church.
Ushers greet those who enter the doors to Hope’s Sanctuary. They are the face of Hope, a sign of what’s in store for all those who enter, both members and visitors. At the entrances, they hand out weekly worship bulletins and newsletters. During Communion, they assist with directing an orderly flow of worshippers to/from Communion. Ushers may help with seating members and visitors at services or for events with high attendance, or assist those with special needs. They are expected to serve efficiently and warmly, with dignity and reverence, caring and helpful hearts. They represent our welcoming God!
Who can be an Usher?
If you are a “people person,” have the gift of hospitality, and would like to help make all God’s children feel welcome and special, consider becoming an usher. Both men and women are needed. You can be a full-time or seasonal resident.
What’s the time commitment?
Ushers are asked to commit to the same service every week for one month at a time. Ushers do not meet regularly. Instead, lead ushers for each service are responsible to schedule ushers for their service and to communicate regularly with their ushering team members.
How do I join?
To join, contact the head ushers or the church office.
