Ushers and Greeters

"A visitor is the most important person that attends church on Sunday. His attendance has been motivated by a friend or a deep need. He brings his hurts, questions and apprehensions. He looks for warmth, acceptance and smiles.
When he receives these things, he will return. When he returns, he will find God."
John Maxwell

​The Ushers and Greeters perform a very valuable role at Cross of Christ by offering a warm and friendly greeting to every person who attends our services. Many people have commented on how important it was to them to feel welcome when they first came to our church. Our number one priority is a positive first impression.
Greeters are at the front doors from about 15 minutes before, until 5 minutes after the start of the service.
The ushers greet people coming into the auditorium to be seated, hand out bulletins and take the offering.
A schedule for three months is created and passed out four times per year.
Numerous people ask to serve as both ushers and greeters
We make it possible for them to serve in both capacities on a given Sunday so they are scheduled less frequently. Schedule changes and substitutions are made whenever the need arises.
The length of commitment is typically one year but people serve only as long as it works well for them.
We would be delighted to have you join us in either or both of these ministries.
If you have questions, please contact Tom Gerber by calling the church office and asking for his contact information.
