Acolytes

Children and youth acolyte each week in the traditional service. They wear robes, lead the choir in and light candles on the altar.

 

Altar Guild

Members of the Altar Guild prepare the altar in the Sanctuary for worship services by caring for and placing the linens, polishing brass and cleaning candelabra.

 

Choirs (for more information see Music Ministry)

We have a variety of choirs for different ages.  The Cherubim is the youngest made up of children who are age 3 through first grade.  The Praise Band is an adult choir that provides music every week at the 9:30 Contemporary Worship service.  The Sanctuary Choir sings at the 11:00 Traditional Worship. 

           

Communion Stewards

The main responsibility of the Communion Stewards is to prepare and remove the elements (bread & juice) that are used for Communion.

 

Flower Guild

Flowers for all worship services are purchased and arranged by members of the Flower Guild. Members also do arrangements for weddings, funerals and special events for a reasonable charge. Anyone who is interested can join - no experience necessary.

 

Lay Readers

Lay readers are volunteers who are trained to assist in worship by reading scripture and liturgy.

 

Ushers

A team of ushers and greeters at each service welcomes worshippers on Sunday, assists anyone needing directions or physical assistance and collects the offering. They distribute small red gift bags with literature about the church to first-time visitors.


Tech Team

Both services need people to monitor the sound board and work the slides used during the service.  Contact the church office if interested.
