 Worship

9:30 AM Worship Services 

Acolyte - Youth 3rd grade to 8th grade will be lighting the pulpit candles at the start of the service as well as extinguishing the candles at the conclusion of our time together.  Acolyte is an ancient Greek term that means follower or helper.  The lighting of the candles at the start of the service is to remind worshippers that God is present in the service.  At the conclusion of the service, the acolytes will extinguish the candles and carry the light out of the service, reminding us that as we move from our worship time to our daily lives, we are reminded to carry the light of Jesus Christ into the world.

 Ushering -join the ushering team to hand out bulletins, assist worshipers with finding their seats, and help collect the offering during the worship service.

Member Care
Member Care is a team of worshippers who care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of our faith community. Here’s how you can serve:

 

Visitors -join the team to help visitors get connected and plugged in to our faith community. It’s strange to attend a new church; join us in making visitors feel welcomed and encouraged.

 

     Contact: Whitney Merinar at wmerinar55@gmail.com  if you are interested in serving in this manner.

 

Members -join the team to care for and help our members build relationships, grow spiritually, and find ways they can serve. Connecting our members in these areas is vital as a way to deepen and strengthen our Christian community. Come along with the journey of making sure our members are growing strong and staying connected.

 

     Contact Whitney if you are interested in serving in this manner.

 

New Members -join the ministry team who helps plug our brand new members into vital areas for growth and service. Once people join the faith community it is vital for them to get connected in relationships with others and spiritual growth ministries. We need you to make sure our new members have found a good faith home.

 

     Contact Whitney  if you are interested in serving in this manner.

 

Homebound Members -help care for those who are kept in their homes by age, sickness, handicap, or disability. Help take them food, bulletins, sermon CDs, encouragement, or just visit them for a few minutes to build them up.
