The Worship Commission oversees all the ministries that provide leadership in our worship services. The Commission members meet monthly to coordinate efforts, to review and plan. Our Sunday services are usually Holy Eucharist and are held at 8 and 10:30 AM in the Church. Check the bulletin, newsletter, website and phone answering service for any changes. 8 AM services are held in the Church Building; there is no music as part of the service. 9:15 AM Christian Formation classes are held in the Parish Hall. 10:30 AM services are held in the Church Building and include music.
Ministries include: Altar Guild – prepares the altar and worship space for all services and restores everything following services. Altar Guild members serve on teams, usually assigned once a month for a week at a time. The team arranges flowers on the altar as appropriate for the season. Acolytes – assist in all worship services, carrying the cross in procession, preparing for communion and gathering the offering to be presented. Training is held periodically; anyone in 3rd grade or older is invited to participate. Lectors are those who read the Scriptures during services. Sometimes Lectors also serve as Eucharistic Ministers. Eucharistic Ministers are those who assist with giving communion on Sundays and at other services. They are trained by the Rector and are licensed for this ministry by our Bishop. Eucharistic Visitors are those who bring Communion to those who are homebound, or in assisted living facilities, including: Beaufont Towers, The Meadows, Beaufont Healthcare, and Spring Arbor. Greeters and Ushers (at 10:30 AM) serve by greeting those who come to services, handing out bulletins, assist guests in completing a visitor form, and help with collecting the offering. They are also scheduled for special services. Healing Prayer Ministers are available after Communion to pray with any who desire prayer for themselves or on behalf of others.
