Reviews - What do customers think about Welcome to Our Church: A Handbook For Greeters And Ushers?

Rather archaic...  Sep 22, 2006
I suspect that this book might have been perfectly applicable for most American churches in the 1950's. And I know that there are many churches who still function as if it is the 1950's. But this book is horribly out-dated, as evidenced by repeated usage of words like nave, narthex, and acolyte. How many churches still have something called a worship folder and post hymn numbers on the wall in the front of the church? If you worship in Walnut Grove on "Little House on the Prairie," then this is the book for you!!

In moving past this admittedly sarcastic opening, let me clarify that I'm not here to criticize traditional worship styles. My wife and I often lead the traditional service at our church, and we love the history of the church in the midst of the exciting contemporary influences that have arisen over the past decade or so. The problem with this book is not that it references more traditional forms of worship but that it almost assumes that these practices are the norm. Just as there are still many churches who practice church like it was practiced a generation or two ago, there are many who have changed things dramatically, a fact that seems to be ignored in this book.

Not all is lost, however. I was pleased to read some solid biblical foundations for the roles of ushers and greeters in the church. Schroeder's theological and philosophical explications are helpful, and I plan to use some of this information to inspire and challenge our usher and greeter teams. However, the practical tips simply do not apply to how we (or most churches that I've visited in the past twenty years) do church.

I had hoped to buy multiple copies of this book to pass along to our ushers and greeters. Instead, I'll be pulling a few snippets of useful information to pass along and looking for another resource that is written with more contemporary practices in mind.
