Board of Ushers
The Board of Ushers renders a great service to the Worship Center by extending kindness and courtesy to all who come to worship with us. The Board is committed to freely demonstrating the love of God while accepting all those who enter into the Worship Center.

â€śFor a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.â€ť Psalm 84:10
The Hospitality Ministry is focused on devouring the stereotype that has some believing that â€śchurch members are unfriendlyâ€ť. The ministry seeks to invoke the feeling in every member and every guest that they are welcomed and wanted. The ministry understands that â€śGrowing Churches Love and Loving Churches Growâ€ť.
Therefore, ministry team members exemplify the love of Christ and consistently display a warm and friendly attitude towards every person that walks through the doors of the Worship Center. The Hospitality Ministry truly believes: Love draws people like a powerful Magnet. A lack of love drives them away. People must be made to feel like they belong.
â€śAnd above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. Use hospitality one to another without grudging.â€ť I Peter 4:8-9
