Worship Ministries

church reduced

There are many ways to support our  worship–and we don’t require a Phd in liturgy to participate.  In fact, we see participating in worship as a fabulous way to learn about God, worship, and ourselves.  Truth is–learning requires trying new things; and that means making mistakes along the way.  If you have been hesitant to “put yourself out there,” contact Mary Bea and explore what new learnings await you in this encouraging environment.

Lectors read the Old Testament and Epistle Lessons and the Prayer of the People.

Lay Eucharistic Ministers are appointed by the clergy and serve three-year terms.  They support the clergy in administering the wine at Holy Communion.  Lay Eucharistic Visitors take Communion to those who are home-bound or sick.

Ushers and Greeters provide hospitality for our members and guests by greeting people, handing out bulletins, directing traffic, and a whole bunch of other things that come up that you could never imagine.

The Altar Guild is responsible for many of the details related to preparing for worship–preparing and changing altar linens, “setting the table” for Holy Communion, arranging flowers, supporting the clergy in any way possible to assure the worship space is beautiful and the service is seamless.  The Holy Spirit Altar Guild is prayerful, collaborative, and creative.

Training is provided for all ministries–usually in the fall, and occasionally as needed throughout the year.

Prayer is an important part of our faith.

If you have a special private request for our prayer team to include in their daily rememberances, please submit a prayer request using this form.

Please rest assured that all prayer requests are kept sacred and confidential.
Every prayer request we are sent receives loving, compassionate attention by our Prayer Ministry Team.

Please know that we are here for you and that you are never alone. If you would like to be contacted so that we may pray with you, please include your contact information on the form, also.

May God bless you and keep you.
