ushersThe Worship Committee’s mission is to create the best worship experience possible. When people walk into a church for the first time, the usher that greets them as they hand out the bulletin is the face of Ascension. Because of the large number of worshippers who stream through our doors each weekend, many ushers are needed at each service to ensure a meaningful worship experience and create a welcoming atmosphere for all. Ushers are placed on teams and serve on a rotating basis at our worship services. Ushers are also needed for our special events.
