Usher Sign up
All are invited to serve as Ushers at FPC! One goal of our strategic plan is to equip the saints for ministry! Yes, that is you! Our hope is to have all members and active visitors participating in servant leadership through a variety of ministry opportunities!

What is an usher? An usher is a person who shares gifts of hospitality. Ushers are responsible for greeting worship attendees, passing out bulletins, collecting offering, etc. A current elder serves as the Usher chair ensuring all who have signed up to serve are well prepared. We need three ushers every Sunday. Being an usher is a great way to meet our church family!
