What is an Usher?

An usher is one who serves the Lord by being that person to greet those who have come to worship. An usher is one who helps a person find a seat or find the restroom. An usher is one who helps those with walkers and canes to their seats. An usher is always serving the Lord by representing the Lord through kindness and a smile. To know more about being an usher there will be a quick meeting after the service on August 22nd and 29th to answer any and all questions that one may have about being an usher.
