Thank you for volunteering your time to participate in worship at St. Michael’s! We have generated this list based on the Time & Talent information. If you do not intend to be a lector at St. Michael's, please let me know and we can correct our error.
As in the past, you will receive reminder emails the week of your scheduled date, but please mark these dates on your calendar now.
If you find your schedule changes and you are not able to serve on a day you are scheduled, you may use this website to ask to swap with another Usher.
Just below is a link to the Handbook about Ushering at St. Michael's. If you have any trouble viewing or printing these documents, just let me know.
- Stand at the Sanctuary doors or at the aisles to hand out bulletins, announcements and welcome people to worship.
- In either location, if there are a number of people coming at once be attentive to making sure people aren't left standing, waiting to get to their pew.
- It would be helpful if there are four ushers, that two of them station themselves near the parking lot entrance to welcome folks to church.
- On Communion Sundays, if there are people who wish to receive communion in their pew, please take the pastors to those people.
New Usher Responsibility:
Starting on April 14 2019, we asked ushers to place new pew envelopes in each pew rack so that visitors or those who are giving a loose offering can provide their name and contact information with their gift. This allows us to better track patterns in loose offering, appropriately recognize and thank our givers, and retain visitor information.
Pew envelopes will be stored in the usher cabinets. While straightening up the pews after worship, ushers should restock envelopes as needed.
Thank you for your help!
Again, your willingness to volunteer your time is very much appreciated!
