Leading and Serving in Worship
There are several ways in which one can serve the congregation and form friendships in the wonderful worship & music at our church.
If you are looking for a schedule of who serves on what day, please look in the “Inside St. Paul” section of this website.
The Altar Guild prepares our sanctuary and table, creating a beautiful and inspiring place to worship. Contact Nancy Tiedeman for more information.
Acolytes, Crucifers and Book Bearers assist in leading the service in many ways such as lighting candles, processing, bearing the symbols of our faith for all to see and assisting in serving communion. Most of these people are between 6th and 10th graders, but any who wish to serve are welcome to volunteer – just ask our vicar.
Ushers do many tasks, including welcoming worshippers, distributing worship materials and aids, helping to find seats, and generally facilitating worship.
Deacons are members of the church council who lead parts of our worship service.
Tellers count and deposit any offerings received each week.
The Adult Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings 7:30-9pm throughout the program year. We lead the music in worship at the 10:15am service on most Sunday mornings except during the summer.
Except during the summer, the Psalms are sung responsively with the leadership of a Cantor. We are always grateful for new voices to lead us in this part of the worship service.
Youth Chamber Music – young instrumentalists may join ensembles with similar ages, abilities and interests to perform at various times during worship services or just to enjoy each other’s company in a musical way.
Solo and Ensemble Opportunities – there are additional opportunities to share your musical gifts and talents by performing special music during preludes, postludes and offertories. Especially during the summer when the choir is on vacation, we enjoy the musical offerings of musicians in our congregation.
