"For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness." (Psalms 84:10)
The Usher Ministry of the West Oakland Missionary Baptist Church (WOMBC) provides for the overall needs of the pastor, pulpit associates, church officers, members and other worshippers during worship services, special services (e.g. funerals), and other requested activities.
Ushering is an extremely important ministry. Ushers are an essential part of the worship team for Sundays and other services. Ushers support is vital to the smooth flow of worship services and commitment to this ministry is imperative.
The Usher ministry is one of welcoming people into God’s house of worship. An usher’s greeting will enhance our visitor’s impressions of our church. Many worshippers bring with them, their hurts, questions, uncertainties and apprehensions. Therefore, it is important that we provide warmth, acceptance, and smiles.
Remember, “WE ARE HERE TO SERVE”
Please check the Sunday bulletin for ushering tips which will enhance and inform the worshippers of proper church protocol.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the usher ministry please contact the Ministry Director, an usher member, or the Church office.
