Ezra 7:27 King James Version (KJV)
"27 Blessed be the Lord God of our fathers, which hath put such a thing as this in the king's heart, to beautify the house of the Lord which is in Jerusalem..."
The Beautification Ministry consists of dedicated members who utilize their services and creative talents to visually shift the atmosphere of the sanctuary and fellowship hall. Their artistic gifts and ability to envision are exercised to promote and enhance our place of worship not only for the enrichment of the service, but to ultimately magnify and offer praise to Lord.
Ushers, Greeters, Nurses Guild
The role of the Ushers, Greeters and Nurse’s Guild is considered one of great significance and importance. The origins of these roles are noted throughout Old Testament through the establishment of “doorkeepers” or “gatekeepers”. Biblical references to these roles include: Psalms 84:10, 2nd Kings 22:4, Jeremiah 35:4, 1st Chronicles 9:19 and Ezekiel 40:45-46. The duties assigned at that time included receiving collections at the House of God or acting in the capacity of one who kept charge of the House of God. There are some instances where they were even formally armed guards.
These individuals serve as door keepers to the Tabernacle and aid in the overall maintenance of keeping order and seeing to the needs of those who enter. They are the first people encountered prior to worship service. They usher in the Spirit of God by fostering a welcoming spirit, ensuring that all who enter are welcomed, a role that is not to be taken lightly as this can often set the tone for not only the spiritual atmosphere of the service but openness to the reception of God for each individual they encounter.
