I first ushered at St. Andrew’s on Christmas Eve 1993. What I most appreciate about St. Andrew’s is the people, and ushering allows me to greet people at the door. The first person one often encounters when arriving for Sunday worship is the usher. Last year, a parishioner told me that one Sunday he arrived at church in a bad mood, but the warm greetings from the ushers brightened his spirits and changed his day.

When we regather in-person for worship on July 4th, ushers will help guide our parishioners through the sanctuary under the current COVID guidance. Ushers will be seating parishioners in pews, guiding people up for communion, and assisting parishioners in exiting the sanctuary. We anticipate needing about 4 Ushers at the 8am service and possibly 6 ushers at the 10am service. Please contact Van Bobbitt at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering.
- Greeters/Check-In – We also need volunteers to greet and check parishioners and visitors in for worship at both the 8am and 10am services. While much of this ministry is currently related to COVID guidance, this is an opportunity to offer (a safe) and robust welcome to all who walk through our doors. We anticipate needing 2-4 greeters at each service. Please contact Nancy Boutwell at email@example.com, if you would like to serve in this way.
