     As an official representative of the church and of Jesus Christ, the usher has an enormous obligation in helping lead peole into readiness for learning, worshiping, and evangelism. The attitude the sher demonstrates in the foyer of the church is a forerunner of the ministry to be experienced in the auditorium. Hopefully, the usher’s expression of Christianity helps people open their hearts and minds fo rthe worship of God and direction of His Holy Spirit.
The church Nominating Committee shall nominate a chairman of the Ushering Committee to the church. An Assistant Chirman shall be chosen by the Ushering Committee Chairman to serve in his absence.

Greet the people both before and after services.

Be alert to needs of persons during services.
(Ushering Continued)
Assist as required in restoring the auditorium to physical orderiness.
Chairman of Ushers: The wise choice of a chairman of the church Ushering Committee is the secret of ushering success. If the chairman of ushers is a man of God, dedicated to his task, posessing qualities of leadership, and in full sympathy with the pastor and the program of the church those he leads will also develop these qualities. He must believe in detailed planning and competent training. A close co-worker with the pastor, he should anticipate the needs of the pastor and the congregation.

Hebron Grace Home
The Hebron Grace Home mission project continues! The call came from HGH that they needed kitchen supplies and food reserves. So, for the whole month of June, our folks and others brought what they could to help out this ministry to women who want have victory over addictions in their lives. On July 14, we loaded one pickup truck, one van, and one SUV with all the items that were donated and delivered them to HGH. They were so appreciative and overwhelmed by our support from us as well as others in the community. The team leaders there kept thanking us and also emphasized that without local community support, they could not continue their mission to these women. We also received a tour of their facilities, were served lunch, heard a testimony of one of the women who had been through the program and was now living free, and even were given some peaches to take home! Thank you all for your support for this ministry in our community that is reaching women from many places!
