Worship is a verb! The word liturgy means “work of the people.” The most important participants in worship are the people in the pews. Their active participation is what creates worship.
Several leadership roles exist to help facilitate our community worship. Please speak with the Rector if you are interested in serving in any of these roles.
Lectors read the Scripture passages and lead the Prayers of the People. They embody the people’s stewardship of the Bible and responsibility to share it. And they give voice to the congregation’s intercessions and thanksgivings. Anyone of any age with adequate reading skills is welcome to participate as a lector.
Lay Eucharistic Ministers assist with the distribution of the consecrated bread and wine in Holy Communion.
Acolytes are young people who assist in the liturgy. Read more about the acolyte ministry HERE.
Ushers help with seating, collecting the monetary offering and directing people to the altar to receive Communion.
Greeters offer a ministry of hospitality, welcoming people, especially visitors, to the worship service.
During the “choir season” (the academic year), the choir helps lead congregational singing at the 10:00 service and also sings choral anthems to offer praise to God and bring beauty to worship. Read more about the choir and music program HERE.
