Worship Support


Open to youth age 10+. Acolytes play an important role in the pageantry of our Episcopal service, bearing banners, candles and assisting the priests. Participants generally serve one Sunday per month. Training sessions take place when needed.

Altar Guild

Members of the Altar Guild work in teams of four persons one weekend per month. The work is divided among the team members so that the individual time commitment is about 4 hours. In addition to creating beautiful flower arrangements they care for and place the altar vestments and vessels and clean and put everything away after each church service. Training is provided on the spot with this convivial group.

Volunteers are needed to produce the Service Bulletins on their home computers using The Rite Stuff© and Publisher© programs. Normally one person produces the Bulletins for all three services once each month. Can you help?

Coffee Hour

What better way to get to know someone than over a cup of coffee? Volunteer host teams of 3 or 4 parishioners prepare and serve coffee and tea after the 10 A.M. service. Food is always nice but not necessary.
