Making a difference in the Body of Christ:
Ushering in the local church involves much more than shaking hands and seating people. Some think that ushers and greeters are merely hand shakers and bucket passers. The CLC Ushers and Greeters are a part of the Ministry of Helps, employed by Almighty God.
And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.
1 Corinthians 12:28 (NKJV)
Many have never noticed the Ministry of Helps in the Bible. They have
noticed apostles, prophets, teachers, miracles, gifts of healing, tongues and
interpretation. But when it comes to helps and governments, many people have not validated its importance in the Church in facilitating the flow of the Holy Spirit.
But the scriptures clearly state that God has set the ministry of ”Helps” into the Church. The Greek word “helps” in the Bible has a literal meaning of “one who gives assistance.” Helps describes one of the ministrations in the local church, by way of rendering assistance, especially of help ministered to the weak and needy.
Here at CLC , we believe the function and role of the ushers and greeters are vital to the church and its ability to accomplish the mission that has been placed on the Church.
All men and women who have a servant’s heart and a desire to be a part of “ushering” in the presence of God into our services are invited to join.
