Greeting at Trinity Worship Services

It’s always a special gift to your dear friends and to first-time visitors to Trinity to receive a warm and happy welcome!

Instructions are quite simple:

  1. Arrive ½ hour before the start of the service.

  2. Fill out a nametag.

  3. Welcome everyone with your warmest smile, words, and handshake.

You will be assigned to one of 2 locations: 4th Street and 3rd Street entrances. It’s your choice to greet outside or inside or a combination. It’s always nice to have someone opening the door.

  • Collect the offering
  • Usher people to Communion (3 ushers)
  • Count the number of worshippers (record in notebook in ushers’ stand)
  • Tidy-up the pews after the service
  • Handle any emergency. Instructions are emailed with final usher schedule and also posted on the bulletin board at the Ushers’ Stand.
