Worship Assistants at All Saints
We are called to serve God in this world,
and many of those opportunities can come right here at All Saints. Join us in supporting worship ministries on Sunday mornings.
If you have questions or want to sign up, please contact our Scheduling Coordinator, Kay Labosky (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Reader volunteers are called to participate in the lay reading every Sunday morning. Readers usually provide an Old Testament and New Testament reading in our traditional services. In our contemporary service, The Gathering, one of their two readings is typically from the Gospel.
Deacons at All Saints assist with the distribution of communion. Deacons receive training prior to their first volunteer service.
The Altar Guild prepares communion for all traditional and contemporary worship services every Sunday. Members work behind the scenes to change and maintain the paraments, the candles, and the altar area in the Sanctuary. Members also decorate the Narthex, the Sanctuary, and the Parish Hall for Christmas and Easter seasons. Training is provided.
Contact Sue Shregardus for more information.
A Sacristan assists 'behind the scenes' at our traditional worship services. Arriving in the Sacristy 15 minutes before the beginning of an assigned worship service, a sacristan ensures that the acolyte and crucifer are robed, have necessary equipment and are in their assigned positions on time. After worship, sacristans make sure that robes and equipment are replaced in their proper places. Volunteers will be assigned to one service, one week per month (on average). The pastor in charge of worship will be available to help if needed.
Ushers and Greeters
Our ushers and greeters welcome members and visitors to All Saints. Ushers also collect the offering and distribute bulletins. Our ushers and greeters are always eager to incorporate more volunteers.
Nursery volunteers assist in teaching 'Frolic in Faith' on Sunday mornings. The nursery is open to families during all of our regular Sunday worship services and some holidays.
