Ushers serve an important role in the life of St. John’s Parish Church on Sundays and other special services. They greet everyone as they enter the sanctuary, hand out prayer lists and other papers as needed. They also assist newcomers to find their way - whether to find a place to sit, locate the nursery or maybe find the restroom. Ushers also help to collect the offering and present it at the altar. When it is time to receive communion, they help the congregation know when it is the proper time to come forward. Another very important role of an usher is to count attendance at worship services.
If you would like to find out more about being an usher, please contact Sally Dixon. We often have couples serve together. It is a wonderful way to worship with your spouse. Each usher is normally scheduled for two Sundays in a row.
