The ministry of ushers is the oldest ministry in the Baptist Church. The ushers of today have descended from a long line of people of God who have gone before them. During the time of Christ, the doorkeepers of the temple numbered in the hundreds and were the forerunners of today’s ushers. While ushers of today no longer number in the hundreds our importance to the church has not been diminished. The primary duties and responsibilities of our ushers include greeting and welcoming parishioners and visitors as they enter the church, help them to find seats, taking up the collection and wishing everyone a good day at the conclusion of our service. At Gillfield we have several groups of ushers, including men, women and youth and for special occasions we have the Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts assisting. We want to take this opportunity to invite you to visit our church and be a part of our worship experience. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
