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