Our mission as a member of the Senior Usher Ministry is to serve as doorkeepers in the house of God, as we also support the vision of the Pastor. To assist in creating and maintaining an atmosphere where the worshippers can focus their undivided attention upon the Lord at all times.
Ushers represent the church in a very visible way, helping to set the tone in preparation for worship service, as well as assisting with the smooth operation of the service. Ushering is a ministry to serve people as Jesus says in Mark 10:45 (NIV) “For even the son of man did not come to be served but to serve. . .” Part of our duties as an Usher is to help prepare the church for each service, assist with the offering, greet and assist worshippers with seating and be attentive and alert to serve at all times. The requirements are very basic, a Christian spirit, commitment to tithing, courteous, promptness and plenty of love in your heart and smiles.
Motto: “If every usher was just like me, what would this usher board be?”
In Psalm 84:10, which is often used to describe the important roles ushers have in the church, David states that, "I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked."
Members of this ministry usher every 4th Sunday at the S. Hairston campus. The ministry is also host of an annual birthday celebration for the residents of Antioch Estates Manor. Brother Bernard Hardy is the contact for this event.
