Ushers are forerunners, for they prepare the church for church members and guests by being the first to arrive at the church;  they receive the order of the day from the Pastor; they see that the church is in proper condition to receive the guest; they see that the hymnals, fans, church literature, collection envelopes, and any other items that are to distributed to the congregation are in their proper places.  Church Ushers are missionaries for the church, for they perpetuate the spirit throughout the congregation.  The usher meets the people with a pleasant smile, a warm welcome, and directs them to comfortable seats.  He/She also sees to it that perfect order is kept in and around the church at all times during the services.
