Service Teams

Whether you like to shake hands and give a warm greeting to folks as they come to church, or prefer to help get things ready by serving behind the scenes, we have a place for you.  Ushers, Greeters, Communion Team, and Levites are some of the teams that help to keep our Sunday worship services flowing smoothly.

Communion Team

Communion: To prepare the elements for the Lord's Supper.

  • Meet one Saturday morning quarterly to prepare the Lord's Supper for the entire congregation of Immanuel Bible Church. (approximate time 2 hours)
  • Meet in-between services on the Sunday that the Lord's Supper is served to help replenish the trays.

To volunteer to serve on the Communion Team, contact Alex Hairgrove.


The primary Levite duty is to maintain the pew racks for worship, keeping the various components orderly and uniform in appearance and refreshed with the necessary communication cards and giving envelopes.

Commitment - Levites are encouraged to select a specific day of the week to regularly provide maintenance for a specific segment of the Worship Center. The Music & Worship Office will provide all the necessary supplies.

Ushers and Greeters

Greeters and Ushers strive to welcome the body of Immanuel with a friendly word, a warm smile, and an extended hand of fellowship. Our prayer is that each person arriving at Immanuel will sense a warm, caring, body of believers.

Ushers and Greeters serve for at least one service per Sunday for a month and then are off for a month. Ushers are asked to arrive 20 minutes prior to the service and stay until the end of the service. Greeters are asked to arrive 20 minutes prior to the service but serve only until 15 minutes into the service.

Duties Include:

  • Greeting Worshippers
  • Seating Worshippers
  • Duties during service
  • Distribute Visitor Brochures
  • Collect offering
  • Assist with emergencies
  • Assist with special events, i.e. Christmas Concerts, Easter Pageants, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, etc.
