During the 7:45 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. worship celebrations, we will celebrate the ministry of those called to be “doorkeepers.” Ushers (aka “doorkeepers”) are responsible for leading worshipers into the presence of God, that is, they lead the congregation into the sanctuary for praise, worship and any other events or ceremonies in the church sanctuary or chapel.
At Grace UMCLA, there are four different usher boards:
- Adult Usher Board, serving on first and third Sundays
- Men’s Usher Team, serving on second Sundays at 7:45 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. and fourth Sundays at 7:45 a.m. only
- Youth Usher Board, serving on fourth and fifth Sundays at 10:45 a.m. only
- Senior Usher Board, serving on-call for funerals
Each board will recognize an outstanding usher who will receive the Golden Glove Award. Also, the boards will join together for the traditional ushers’ march.
If you feel called to this service ministry, please reach out to any usher or attend an usher ministry meeting on 3rd Saturdays at 9:30 a.m.
