Service At Worship

 
 
Acolytes: Pre-teens through adults are encouraged to train for this ministry. With enough participants, you might only be scheduled once a month to serve as an acolyte,
torch bearer or Crucifer.
Altar Guild: This ministry prepares the altar and clergy vestments, candles, communion wafers, linen and brass maintenance, changing the hymnal board each week
cleaning and adorning the sanctuary for different seasons and special feast days of the church year, and assisting the florist with flower arrangements.
Children’s Chapel LeadersChildren’s chapel midway through the 10:30 service provides an opportunity during the time of the sermon for our children to experience
worship designed especially for them. They have a special prayer, listen and discuss a gospel story or reading that coincides with the Lectionary gospel reading, and do a craft or another activity. We need adult and teen leaders to assist the children in their worship before they return for Communion with their families.
Greeters:  Visitors and members alike are greeted at the door by the friendly face of one or more of our members who have volunteered to be involved with the Greeter
Ministry of the parish. Additionally, they identify newcomers and present them with a special welcome package.
Home Eucharistic Visitors: These are lay ministers who carry communion to parishioners who, for health or other reasons, are confined to home, hospitals or
nursing facilities. In addition to sharing a short service with them, the HEV provides valuable companionship and visitation to the homebound.
Lay Eucharistic Ministers: These ministers assist the priest at the altar and help administer Communion. We conduct regular training for this office, six of whom serve
each week at services.
Lectors: These people read the lessons at all regularly scheduled services and special services, including Ash Wednesday, Lenten Stations of the Cross, Holy Week, Lessons and Carols and funerals. They also lead parishioners in the Prayers of the People.

Ushers: These individuals assist at all church services, greeting and distributing service leaflets, count attendees, assist with the offering and direct parishioners to the altar
during communion and straighten up the pews after the service.
