Duties of the Worship Committee

Usher and Greeter Recruting and Scheduling

Ushers and Greeters are all volunteers. This is a great way to get to meet the people attending your service. Volunteers may elect to serve as little as one week a month or talk to the coordinator and work out your own schedule. Ushers also prepare the attendance pads, take the attendance count and acknowledge first-time visitors by passing out a small church welcome gift.

Arranging and Training for Communion Service

The next easy step for a volunteer is to learn what is involved in serving Communion. Doing the Lord's work is always a thrill and this is sure to make your Sunday special.

Acolytes - Scheduling and Training

An Acolyte performs the ceremonial lighting and extinguishing of altar candles. The lighting of altar candles is a symbol of Jesus’ coming into the presence of the worshiping community. Before extinguishing the altar candles, the acolyte relights the "candle lighter" and then proceeds out into the narthex. This symbolizes the light of Jesus Christ going out into the world where believers are called to serve. There is no age limit to being an Acolyte and this is another great way to serve the Lord.
