There are a variety of ways for people to serve God in our worship. Here are a few of the opportunities.
The Altar Guild
Members of the Altar Guild are responsible for the care and upkeep of all the items used during worship. These include chalices, bowls, fonts, linens, and the like. Members take turns preparing for worship services and cleaning up afterwards. This is a vital ministry that ensures our worship is dignified and in good order. If you are interested in this particular ministry, please speak with the Altar Guild directress, Mrs. Linda Ammar.
Acolytes guide our worship services in procession and assist the priest in his or her duties at the altar. Our acolyte program is open to men and women of all ages.
Lectors volunteer to read our lessons during worship and lead us prayer.
A lay reader is an individual licensed to serve as a worship leader. A lay reader is trained and able to conduct services of Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, or other offices that can be officiated by a lay person in the absence of a priest.
A chalicist assists in the administration of the Holy Eucharist during worship.
Lay Eucharistic Ministers
Lay Eucharistic Ministers are specially licensed to take the Holy Eucharist to the homes of those who, for whatever reason, are unable to attend church regularly. This is a special ministry for those with a pastoral spirit.
If you would like more information about any of these ministries, please contact the church office.
