As ushers at Second Missionary Baptist Church, it is our goal to meet, extend greetings with joy and enthusiasm and always a smile to the masses that enter through our doors.
Our ushers welcome members and visitors from entry to exit. They greet attendees with a smile. It is a true gift to exude the love required to fulfill the mission of an usher in God's church. Ushers are kind, attentive to the needs of our pastor and all congregant in our sanctuary. Ushers provider order during our service, creating a setting that will be comfortable for all to praise and worship God without reservation.
About joining: Please see any usher on duty and he/she will direct you to the proper person to assist you. Our ushers typically wear matching uniforms, but please, do not let this discourage you from joining. A welcoming spirit and a smile are the only requirements for joining.
