Our many successful weekly worship services are the result of many volunteers giving their time to prepare for these services. Ways to volunteer are as an Acolyte, be on the Altar Guild, be a Lay Eucharistic Minister, a Lector, sing in the Choir, be an Usher, or be a host for Breakfast or Coffee Hour.

Acolytes play an integral role in our Sunday morning worship, and serving as an acolyte is a great opportunity to experience our services in a new way. The Acolyte Ministry is a wonderful way to be involved.
Altar Guild members prepare the sanctuary for all services, making sure the table is prepared for Holy Eucharist. They minister to the altar by washing and ironing the linens used, maintaining the seasonal hangings on the pulpit and lectern and changing them with the change of liturgical seasons or occasions. They polish silver and brass used for services and keep an orderly sacristy. The Altar Guild leader prepares the yearly schedule, recruits and trains new members, communicates with clergy, staff, and other members about special requirements, and makes sure all supplies and cleaning materials are on hand.
Sunday mornings at All Saints’ Church, a full breakfast is offered after the 8 am service and a coffee hour in the parish hall following the 10 am service. Volunteer hosts cook and serve. At St. George’s Chapel, volunteers host a coffee hour in the parish hall after the 9:30 am service. Consider volunteering to host one of these wonderful times of fellowship.
Lay Eucharist Ministers
Each Sunday, the priest celebrating the service has someone serving with him at the altar. Lay Eucharistic Ministers assist with Holy Eucharist, read the lessons and lead the prayers of the people. Lectors assist with the readings.
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 Eucharist. 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!
