The Ushering department of Living Waters Unlimited Church is one of the key departments set up to:
a) Provide an enabling environment for effective Word ministration to the congregation during service
b) Ensure orderly conduct of members and visitors during church programs and other ceremonies like wedding etc.
The Ushering department is a core department in the church and impacts on the church growth because of its interface with both new and old members or visitors and first timers as they come in to the church.
Our department is focused to remain impeccably courteous and polite as we warmly welcome and usher in guests and members alike.
