 The FBC Ushers celebrated their 101 Anniversary, Sunday, August 19, 2018 at 2:30 PM. Rev. Ronnie Tyler and the Chalk Hill Baptist Church is in charge of the service.

Mission:  To be doorkeepers in the house of God, and guard the same at all times during Friendship Baptist Church’s services.  “For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand.  I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness” (Psalms 84:10).

 Vision:  To develop a ministry that provides ushers and usher services for Friendship Baptist Church’s worship services and special programs

 Duties:  Ushers are forerunners – for they must adhere to God’s guidance in accepting the position as a doorkeeper, they must help set the tune for the worship experience, they must prepare the church for the guests and members by being among the first to arrive, they must be courteous to all displaying a warm loving  smile and personality, they must be ready to fill the needs of the congregation, they must attend other area churches with the Pastor, they must see that required worship service items are distributed to the congregation as needed, they must attend ushers meetings and an usher must be in study; Bible Study, Sunday School, etc.

 Ushers’ Ministry Programs:

  1.     Senior Usher Ministry:  This ministry consists of Senior Ushers (ages 22 and older) and provides usher services on Sundays at 10:15 am.

  2.     Junior Usher Ministry:  This ministry consists of Junior Ushers (ages 6 to 21) and provides usher services on every  4th Sunday at 10:15 am.

Blessed is the usher who graps the meaning of Christ’s Words. “He that is greatest among you shall be your servant.” Matthew 23:11

“So faith comes from hearing the Good News, and people hear the Good News when someone tells them about Christ.”  Romans 10:17

The purpose of the Audio/Video Ministry is to support other areas of ministry in making disciples of Jesus Christ.

The Audio/Video Ministry is a service ministry to the Pastor, congregation, and sick and shut-ins.

The ministry supports primarily Worship, but also other areas of ministry on an as needed basis.

The ministry endeavors to provide the best possible technical support to other ministry areas through attentiveness, technological knowledge, and awareness of other ministry goals.

The ministry also has the responsibility of managing the sound system for the various services of the church. 

Those in this ministry have a passion for using technology as a means of recording and sharing God’s Word. 

A strong commitment of time and effort is required from those participating in the Audio/Video Ministry.    
                                                                                                                                      

With the expanding services, there is a growing need for volunteers.

Training is provided in all areas.

The Team rotates the responsibilities for the recordings and videoing.

If you think you would enjoy assisting with the technical support of the church, consider trying it.

Join the Audio/Video Ministry.
