SERVING IN WORSHIP

Worship is the heartbeat of the local church.


The liturgy which defines our faith tradition serves as a communal response to the sacred, leading to a deeper relationship with God. The many roles that support congregational worship are recognized as “liturgical ministries.”
Some roles require specific training.  All require a heart to serve.

WORSHIP COMMITTEE

The Worship Committee is a dedicated group of parishioners and staff that meet regularly to discuss upcoming liturgical events, holidays, and feast days. They make decisions about which versions of prayers we use in Sunday worship and plan occasional services.

ACOLYTES

Acolytes assist in the Sunday liturgy and at other times during the year. Serving as torch bearers, crucifers, or servers. Any young person between 4th and 12th grades can join the acolyte team.

ALTAR GUILD

The Altar Guild serves under the direction of the Rector. The duties of the Altar Guild are to care for the altar, vestments, vessels, and the altar linens of the parish. Altar Guild members prepare the sanctuary for services and clean up afterwards. The guild prepares all things necessary for the celebration of the Eucharist or special services including weddings, baptisms, ordinations, confirmations, memorials, and funerals.

FLOWER GUILD

The Flower Guild provides beauty to enhance our worship experience! Flower arranging background is NOT required and training is provided. Arrangements are usually made on Saturdays for services the next day.

LECTORS & INTERCESSORS

Lectors read the lesson during Sunday services and at other special services throughout the year. As intercessors, they also lead the congregation in the prayers of the people. Most lectors serve once per month. No formal training is required.

USHERS

The Usher Ministry is one of hospitality and assistance, particularly for newcomers but also for members in need. Men, women and young adults perform whatever usher duties are necessary every Sunday to help parishioners; being mindful to promote a sense of reverence, to limit disruptions and to be prepared to assist with health emergencies, should they arise.
