Serving as an usher is a great way to assist our Sunday worship services. Ushers are often also needed for funerals, memorial services, and certain special events held in the sanctuary.
Welcoming with a smile everyone who walks through the door to attend a service is an important role of an usher. Two ushers are expected for each service. Handing out bulletins, assisting with seating and questions, distributing the offering plate during the presentation, directing parishioners to the altar during the Eucharist, and helping with any needs during the service are all usher responsibilities as well.
All are welcome as ushers! Training is handled through our Head Usher, Harry Lankenau. A new usher is always paired with an experienced usher. Please contact Harry directly (by phone: 434-760-9507; or email: ), or the church office if you are interested in learning more about the opportunity to serve. Folks in the current usher pool can sign up using the schedule posted on this link, or by contacting Harry or the church office. Thank you for your interest in serving as an usher at Emmanuel.
