Eucharist Ministers

Acolytes participate in worship services by carrying the cross and

torches in procession and serving at the altar at services. 

Any person eleven years old or older may become an

acolyte, and adults are encouraged to serve in the capacity also.  Initial

training is required before serving in the ministry, and all acolytes are

expected to attend regularly scheduled training sessions thereafter.


Ushers assist in worship by greeting people, handing out

service bulletins, passing the offering plates, and directing

worshipers to the communion rail.  Both children and

adults can be ushers.


The adult choir leads the congregational singing and

presents anthem music at special services through out

the year.  Youth from time to time present musical

offerings independently or with adult support.

provide care for altar linens, hangings, vessels, brass and

so forth.  Altar Guild members are scheduled in teams of
