Publisher's Description

A concise guide to the responsibilities of the church usher, intended for use by church staff or volunteers to train new ushers and to help experienced ushers learn new ways to create a welcoming and safe environment for the congregation and visitors. The text covers ushers' responsibilities related to special worship services such as communion, weddings, and funerals, safety issues, and the importance of the ushers' access to and knowledge of emergency equipment in the sanctuary, how ushers should assist persons with disabilities, how ushers serve as worship styles change, and a special section on Greeters and how they can work with ushers to create a welcoming atmosphere for visitors and new members. Includes a brief glossary of worship terms and a quick reference chart/checklist.
