Tips To Help Your Teen Be A Church Usher For The First Time

In many churches, teenagers can get involved in the service in a variety of ways, which can be further discussed at the next church meeting. If your teenager attends church with you and is seeking a chance to be involved, one role that he or she may be offered is that of an usher. Although this specific duty can change from church to church, it's common for ushers to greet people upon entering the building and hand out church bulletins. Your teen may be a little nervous about the importance of this role, especially if he or she is determined to do a good job at it. Here are some tips that you can offer to help your teen do well.

Greet People Warmly

Some teenagers are shy, especially when talking to adults. If your teen sometimes acts in this manner, remind him or her that part of an usher's job is to greet people warmly as they enter the church. Elderly people often love the chance to speak to young people, so remind your teen to be especially be cheerful when greeting senior citizens. He or she should also speak clearly because some elderly individuals struggle to hear. Warm greetings can include welcoming sentiments or brief questions about how the people are doing.

Offer Assistance To The Elderly

Elderly individuals are an important part of any church's congregation, so you should remind your teenager to offer help to them if they need it. For example, if your teen is positioned at the top of a set of stairs leading up to the church, he or she might want to approach an elderly person at the bottom of the stairs and lend assistance getting up. Similarly, if someone appears to have difficulty getting around, it's appropriate for your teen to walk with this congregation member toward his or her seat, and then return to where he or she was standing earlier.

Make Newcomers Feel Welcome

In large churches, it may be hard for your teen to recognize which people are new and which people have been attending the church for a longer time. In the case of a smaller congregation, however, it may be easier to identify people who are coming for the first time. Remind your teen that he or she should make a positive first impression to these people, as this will help the person to feel welcome at a time that he or she might feel a little uneasy about entering a new environment.
