Acolyte Ministry Training (9/20/16)

Posted by on Sep 11, 2016 in EventAnnouncement, Worship & Prayer, youth | 0 comments

Worship is nothing but a jumble of notes and words unless the Holy Spirit is there.   In Matt 18:20, Jesus said:  “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”

Acolytes help us recognize and celebrate God’s presence among us during our services of worship.  The symbolic lighting of the altar candles ushers in the spirit of worship.  And at the end of the service, the “unlighting” of the candles and removing of the flame reminds us that we are to take the light of Christ out into the world as we follow the acolyte’s lead.


Join in this important Ministry…

If you’re at least 10 years old (or soon to be 10),  you can take part in this important ministry.  On Tuesday, September 20 we will conduct a training session for acolytes.  The training will be in the sanctuary from 4-5 PM (meet in the Narthex).  Even if you’re a current acolyte come on out anyway- this can serve as a refresher and you can help our new acolytes.

Acolytes are scheduled on a rotational basis. Each acolyte serves one Sunday every 4-6 weeks during the worship service of their choice.

Applications will be available in the office or at the Welcome Desk.

For further information, see Judy Downham… or just show up!
