As we embark on a new year, there are several opportunities for ministry and service worthy of your consideration. Whether you’ve served in the past or are trying something new, training is available and participation is invited!
Ushers – Distribute worship bulletins, help direct people to available seating, assist with Communion flow and pick up loose paper in sanctuary following worship. Two to four individuals are assigned to serve as point persons and others are asked to fill in as they’re able. Scheduled approximately once/month at service time of choice.
Assisting Ministers – Responsible for leading the prayers during worship and assisting with Communion, one person serves in this capacity at each service. Scheduled approximately once/month at service time of choice.
Lay Readers – Read the selected First and Second Lesson for the day. Texts for review are mailed in advance. Scheduled as availability indicates (once/month – once/year) at service time of choice.
