How to help during worship!


Greeters are the folks who stand by the front doors and say “Hello” to the people that are coming into church. It’s an easy job, and makes visitors feel welcomed.

Acolytes lead the Pastor and Worship Assistant up to the altar. The acolytes carry the cross and the candlelighters to light the altar candles. During the service they take the offering plates and communion elements from the ushers, and help serve communion. At the end of the service, they extinguish the altar candles and take the flame back out of the sanctuary. After taking First Communion, our Grade 3 – 6 youngsters are eligible to serve as acolytes.

Ushers hand out bulletins, count attendance, take the offering, and direct the congregation to the altar for communion.

Worship Assistant is the term for the layperson that helps lead the service. They fill in for the reader, if one is not scheduled. They write prayer petitions, which are shared during the Prayers of the People, help serve communion, and assist during baptisms.

ABC (Altar, Baptism, and Communion) is the group that sets up for services. The altar is prepared according to the church year calendar; communion is set up by service. This group also sets out the special items (water, baptismal cloth, candle, and oil) for any baptisms at their service time.
