Worship Participation and Support

Acolyte  – This is a youth ministry that assists with our weekly worship.  Sunday involvement includes carrying the cross, lighting the altar candles and helping serve communion at either the first or second service.  Ages 10-15.

Altar Care – Would you enjoy making our worship space welcoming and inviting? This important ministry prepares the sanctuary space for weekly  worship.  It involves coordinating and setting up the altar area for weekly services by laying out the cloth paraments (or changing them when seasons change), checking the candles and flowers, and setting up for communion and Baptism (if one is scheduled).  Time commitment is one month a year, working with a small team of people.  Want to learn more? Visit the LOVE IN ACTION Edition about our Altar Guild Ministry.  Love In Action – Altar Guild
