Worship Assistant

The Pastor each Sunday leads us in Word and Sacrament. For the worship experience to be more meaningful, many lay people are involved. They are trained in what they do, but more importantly, in what it means or symbolizes in the worship experience. Joy is always felt, as the Holy Spirit is felt working within them.

Assisting ministers assist the Pastor in the preparation of the Eucharist and in reading the prayers of intercession and of thanksgiving.

The Gospel bearer carries the Bible into the midst of the congregation for the reading of the Gospel, symbolizing Christ coming into the midst of his people.

The Crucifer leads the procession into the church during the “Gathering Hymn” and the recession during the “Sending Hymn”. The Cross that is held symbolizes Christ being among his people.

Our Ushers arrive early to make sure everything is in order for those who are about to worship. They always have a pleasant smile and greet everyone, member or guest, to the worship experience. They are present to help people and assist in the offering and in communion. The ushers are the last to leave, insuring that everyone has left safely.


Bible Verse

“He himself is before all things, and in Him, all things hold together."
