Cathie LeDoux’s penchant for behind the scenes details makes her work largely unseen by most church members, but her joy and devotion are ever visible.
By 7:45 am every Sunday, Cathie is already bustling between the Narthex and Sanctuary, immersed in the routine tasks she was asked to adopt as a part of PCBC’s ushering team.
Cathie knows the difference first impressions can make. She sets up the Narthex for the greeting team to receive members and guests, keeping church literature stocked and ready to welcome and inform new arrivals.
“I want to help create an environment where each and every guest feels like they belong—to be seen and guided, not wandering around, having to navigate these halls alone. That is so important to me. Even if it’s something small, it’s important to someone.”
From there, she walks the aisles of the Sanctuary, from floor to balcony, setting up offering plates for the ushers. She takes extra care to supply the Choral Hall and church office with bulletins so they can stay up to date with all that’s happening in the church. As she completes the final touches, the Sanctuary Orchestra keeps her company with their pre-service rehearsals, which, for Cathie, sets the tone for worship in her heart.
“Sitting down to soak up the orchestra rehearsal before members and guests arrive makes my morning! I so appreciate the fact that PCBC has a traditional service with a Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra. It’s so rare, these days, to find all of those components in a church, and I love being a part of the traditional service as a choir member.”
Serving is Good for Your Heart!
What do your gifts equip you to do on campus at PCBC? As Cathie discovered for herself, there’s a job just for you. Generosity is a lifestyle! Pray about your own involvement and then follow Cathie’s advice: “Don’t be timid. You will be blessed by stepping out! Any help you can provide is a worthwhile endeavor and vital to the church. Serving makes your heart happy.”
