The Ushers Ministry at Tabernacle is divided into two groups: the Junior Ushers and the Senior Ushers.
The duties of the Ushers are to cheerfully greet the worshippers as they enter the sanctuary, show them to an available seat, and to provide programs. The Ushers are also responsible for orderly escorting worshippers to the offering plate and back to their seats. These tasks take place prior to and during the Service.
Tabernacle's Ushers strive to be as helpful and accommodating as possible to the members, visitors, choir, and Pastor.
Tabernacle's Ushers have an annual fish fry and sponsor annual Christmas dinner/outings that the entire membership is invited to attend. The fellowship events are greatly anticipated, and the members look forward to them as much as the Ushers do!
While Tabernacle Ushers believe that ushering is a serious ministry, they enjoy each other and the bond they have developed not only among their association, but with the entire church family.
