H.C. Russell was an usher for the first time when he was 12 years old. With no children at the Sturgeon United Methodist Church, he continues to use the candle lighters every Sunday. "When I was a kid, lighting the candles was a big deal. We saw it as something important because you were contributing to the church," he said.
