Serving the Church

Acolytes

Children ages 9 and older may serve as acolytes during the 10:30am Sunday service and on holidays. Adults serve during the 8:00am service.

Altar Guild

The Altar Guild is responsible for the set up and clean up of the altar vessels and linens for each service. A team of Altar Guild members or an individual serves monthly on a rotating schedule.

Bell Choir

There is a small group of ringers who make up the handbell choir. As more people become interested in handbells, the size of the group and the difficulty of the music will grow. We have been very pleased with the beautiful addition to worship that the handbells have contributed. The group plays at least once each month and rehearses at 6:30pm on Wednesdays.

Choir

The Adult choir leads the music at the 10:300am worship service each week. In addition to leading the congregational singing, the choir also performs an offertory anthem, which is chosen to complement the other aspects of the service.

The choir rehearses each Wednesday evening from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. There is also a rehearsal each Sunday at 9:45 prior to the morning service, and immediately following the service there is an opportunity for those who will be away on Wednesday to have a brief rehearsal with the organist.

Coffee Hour

Each member of the church takes a turn setting up simple snacks for the fellowship time after the 10:30am service. The church provides coffee, lemonade and cookies.

Lay Eucharistic Ministers

The Lay Eucharistic Ministers consist of a chalice bearer who serves the wine during communion and an intercessor who leads the Prayers of the People as well as serving as a chalice bearer.

Lectors

Lectors read the Old and New Testement lessons during the Sunday services.

Men’s Group

The Men’s Group meets monthly on Saturday mornings for pancakes, fellowship, and upkeep of the church building and grounds.

Nursery

A supervised nursery is provided during the 10:30am Sunday service. The nursery is located upstairs at opposite end of the glass hallway from the sanctuary. At the end of the glass hallway turn right. The nursery is the first door on the right.

Tellers

A rotating group of volunteers counts the collection money after the 10:30am service.

Ushers

A team of two ushers greets visitors, hands out bulletins, helps with communion, collects the offering, and provides general assistance to the congregation.
