Ministries at All Saints’ and St. George’s
  • ACOLYTES
    Each Sunday, the priest celebrating the service has someone serving with him at the altar. Lay Eucharistic Leaders assist with Holy Communion, read the lessons and lead the prayers of the people. Lectors assist with the readings.

    If you are interested in becoming a Lay Assistant and would like to volunteer to be scheduled regularly or even occasionally at All Saints’, please contact the parish office.

    If you attend St. George’s and would like to volunteer as a Lay Assistant or as a Lector, please contact Maryann Payne, 302-947-9467, or call the parish office, 227-7202.

  • ALTAR GUILD
    The Altar Guilds of both All Saints’ Church in Rehoboth Beach and St. George’s Chapel in Harbeson offer opportunities for women (and men) to serve on a monthly basis preparing the Altar for each service. The Altar Guild’s work is a thank-offering of time and many talents, a ministry of love undertaken in the name of Christ. At our churches, altar work is done in teams of two and instruction is offered to those new to this ministry. Men as well as women are welcome.

    If you feel called to serve God by preparing and tending to the place where we worship God, please contact the Altar Guild Directress:
    — at All Saints’ – Priscilla Smith
    – at St. George’s – Helen Abbott

  • BREAKFAST/COFFEE HOSTS
    Sunday mornings at All Saints’ we offer a full breakfast after the 8 a.m. service and provide a coffee hour in the parish hall following the 10 a.m. service. Volunteer hosts cook and serve. At St. George’s, volunteers host a coffee hour in the parish hall after the 9:30 a.m. service. Consider volunteering to host one of these wonderful times of fellowship.

  • USHERS
    Two ushers are at the door to meet and greet worshipers at each Sunday morning as well as at numerous other services held at our churches during the year. Duties include opening the church and adjusting the heat and air conditioning for comfort during worship, helping people to seats, distributing bulletins/programs, passing the collection plates, and directing worshipers to the altar for Holy Communion. After services, the ushers ready the church for the next service as well as tally the collection. Men and women both are welcome to this important service to the church. If you are available to usher on even an occasional basis, we would love to have you join us! For more information or to volunteer, please call the parish office: 227-7202.
