Worship Ministry

             The Worship Ministry Group meetings are held once per month and the meeting dates are set at each meeting. The members serve two year terms and can serve a maximum of six consecutive years. The meetings are held in the Fellowship Hall of the church. Minutes of each meeting are posted to the Executive Council. All members of the group are volunteers and approved by the congregation.

             The Worship Ministry Group strives to conform to the guidelines of the church constitution. Some of the functions performed during the last year are listed below.
             The Worship Ministry Group fills the candles after each service, purchases and prepares the wine and bread for the Communion service each month, cleans up after the Communion service, changes the paraments on the chancel, checks to make sure there are flowers on the chancel, cleans up the pews after worship, replenishes the attendance pads, sharpens the pew pencils, replenishes the pew envelopes, recruits ushers for worship, decorates the chancel for fall, helps in preparing for Memorial Sunday, organizes Hanging of the Greens and  organizes the  preparation and cleaning of the candles and blue candleholders for the Christmas Eve Service.
             The candelabras aren’t used anymore except for special occasions such as weddings and Easter, in order to save on candle oil. They are stored in the Sacristy, the room behind the choir.
             The Acolyte Program and Music Committee are under the auspices of the Worship Ministry Group.
