Each worship service requires the service of many dedicated volunteers. The areas of service in the Worship area are:

  • Communion Assistants 
    Communion Assistants help serve the bread and wine of Holy Communion. Periodic training is offered for volunteers.
  • Readers 
    Readers prayerfully prepare and then read the scripture lessons at worship.
  • A.V. Technicians 
    Audio visual techs operate audio, video, computer, and recording devices for worship services, and special congregational events.
  • Ushers 
    Teams of ushers make sure that worshipers have all they need to worship with ease. Ushers pass out bulletins, assist people in finding seats, receive the offering, and assist with the flow of Holy Communion.
  • Altar Guild
    Members of the altar guild make the bread and set up and clean up Holy Communion for each service.
  • Acolytes
    Acolytes are our youth, starting in about the 4th grade, who wish to assist with lighting the candles, collecting empty wine glasses during communion and assisting the pastor during baptisms.
  • Projection Assistants
    Projection assistants help run the PowerPoint slides during our worship services and other special events
  • Greeters
           Greeters welcome everyone as they enter the Narthex, direct visitors to sign the visitors book and
           answer any questions they may have.
