worship volunteer job descriptions
Please arrive at the church at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the service. The Coordinator’s responsibilities are to pray for the Holy Spirit’s presence in the service, assist the Pastor, and confirm that the persons assigned to be participants are present: lector, greeters, ushers, acolyte and/or communion assistants. If any of these persons are not present, you are responsible for finding another volunteer to fulfill that particular responsibility. You may check with David Tesdall for ushers and Pastor Tim for acolytes. Once all volunteer positions are filled for the service, you will inform Pastor Tim that the service is ready to begin.
If you as Coordinator cannot be present at the worship service to which you are assigned, please arrange for another Worship and Music
Committee member to substitute for you and inform the Parish Secretary as to the change before Thursday morning so the change can be noted in the bulletin.
The Worship and Music Committee would like to thank you for being a lector. If you are unable to be a lector on the given date, please arrange to trade with someone on the list or contact the Parish Secretary (597-2831).
The lessons to be read will be mailed or emailed to you. You will read the Psalm and the First and Second Lessons; Pastor Tim will read the Gospel. Please check the bulletin for the order of service so you will know when to come forward to read.
1. Come forward at Pastor’s invitation and receive your communion.
2. After you have received communion, please cleanse your fingers with the provided moist towelette or lotion on the altar before distributing the elements.
3. You will usually serve wine. The outside circle of cups in the tray contains white grape juice for those who request it. On occasion you may be called upon to serve the bread.
4. Acolytes will pick up the used cups.
5. Following the distribution, you may return to your seat.
If for some reason you are unable to serve as communion assistant, please give the Parish Secretary a call at 597-2831 and a replacement will be secured for you. Thank you.
If you are unable to serve on your scheduled date, please call:
Altar Guild: Verda Tesdall – 597-2248
