Greeters and Ushers

“Good morning! Welcome to Saint Matthias.”  Said with a smile, this is one of the simplest forms of evangelism.  The primary role of Ushers and Greeters at Saint Matthias Church is hospitality.  

Greeters are those who welcome members and visitors as they enter the church for worship.  At Saint Matthias the Greeters help ensure that everyone gets a friendly welcome each Sunday. 

Ushers have several duties.  They are responsible for cleaning and straightening the materials within the pews before and after each service.  They distribute bulletins, help people find seats, take a headcount, carry the bread to the altar, pass the offering plate, and assist by directing people to the altar during the Communion. 

Ushers and Greeters typically serve one Sunday per month, normally in teams of two or three persons.
