 Worship

10 AM Worship Services with 10 AM Kids Worship.

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.
