Serving in Worship and Fellowship
There are several ways in which one can serve the congregation and form friendships in the wonderful worship and fellowship at church.
The Altar Guild prepares our sanctuary and table, creating a beautiful and inspiring place to worship. Contact Nancy Tiedeman for more information.
Acolytes, Crucifers and Book Bearers assist in leading the service in many ways such as lighting candles, processing, bearing the symbols of our faith for all to see and assisting in serving communion. Most of these people are between 6th and 10th graders, but any who wish to serve are welcome to volunteer – just ask our vicar.
Ushers do many tasks, including welcoming worshippers, distributing worship materials and aids, helping to find seats, and generally facilitating worship. Aurelio Ramirez is the head usher and can tell you more.
Lectors read the first and second lesson each Sunday for the congregation. These members are scheduled throughout the year and coordinated by John Turner.
Deacons are members of the church council who lead parts of our worship service.
Tellers count and deposit any offerings received each week.
The Adult Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings 7:30-9pm throughout the program year. We lead the music in worship at the 10:30am service on most Sunday mornings.
Except during the summer, the Psalms are sung responsively with the leadership of a Cantor. We are always grateful for new voices to lead us in this part of the worship service.
Our Children’s Choir rehearses frequently during education hour, and performs several times throughout the year.
Solo and Ensemble Opportunities – there are additional opportunities to share your musical gifts and talents by performing special music during preludes, postludes and offertories. Especially during the summer when the choir is on vacation, we enjoy the musical offerings of musicians in our congregation.
Our teachers in Education Hour classes are all volunteers. We have opportunities for all ages from Godly Play to Adult Forum.
Coffee Hour is put on by various members of the congregation. Each week the goodies are bought and the fellowship hall is cleaned up by a few volunteers.
