About This Ministry
Ushers create a supportive, distraction free atmosphere and through fulfilling their role help to ensure a welcoming, safe and meaningful worship experience at Unity Minneapolis.
Ushers interact with all the congregants on a Sunday morning in several ways. They greet people as they enter the Sanctuary, providing them with a bulletin and handouts. They assist people in finding seats, keeping the flow of movement into the sanctuary steady and comfortable.
During the service, they engage in a number of activities, including giving flowers and welcome packets to those who are new to our church, collecting the offering, and then being present as people leave.
After the service, ushers prepare the Sanctuary for the next service, picking up and cleaning where necessary.
These are the primary duties of the ushers, and yet most importantly, ushers offer a welcoming smile, an invitation to be at peace, and a silent affirmation that we are all One. Through actions and consciousness, ushers express very clearly to each individual, that no matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome at Unity Minneapolis.
