 Worship & Music 

Assist in Worship

Sunday morning worship happens because of the work of the following people (click on link to inquire): 

  • The Banner Team makes and hangs seasonal banners and decor in the sanctuary.
  • The Ministers of the Table dress the altar table, bake bread, prepare the elements for Holy Communion, clean up afterwards, and decorate the church for Advent and Christmas.      
  • Audio/Video Technicians oversee and operate the technical audio and video equipment during worship services, weddings, funerals, and other church activities.
  • Greeters stand near the main doors to greet members and guests as they enter the building, point guests to our visitor center, and to provide direction and assistance as needed.
  • Ushers stand at the doors to the sanctuary to hand out bulletins to worshippers as they enter, count the number of persons in attendance, pass the offering plates during the offering, bring them together with the communion elements to the altar.              
  • Acolytes light the candles before the worship service begins, carry the basket for collecting communion cups, and extinguish the candles at the end of the worship service.
  • Lectors read Scripture lessons and carry the chalice during Holy Communion.
  • Communion Assistants carry the tray of cups during Holy Communion.
  • Counters count and record the offering for the day, and take it to the bank for deposit under the direction of the Financial Secretary.

Music Minsitry
