Volunteer Opportunities in Worship

ACOLYTES – Contact Judy Hicks | victorjudyty@windstream.net

Acolyte means companion, attendant or helper. You are a part of the worship service and the worship team. As a candle lighter, acolyte, you bring the light into the worship and at the end take the light back out into the world. You remind the church that Jesus is the light of the world and we are called to carry His light. Children only need to be in the 3rd grade and above and have a willing heart.

COMMUNION SERVERS/STEWARDS – Contact Pastor DeAndrew Johnson | deandre@christchurchsl.org

The celebration of the sacrament of Holy Communion is an act of community which Christ invites all to participate and share in faith. You are invited to share in Christ’s invitation to all by serving as a communion server. We need volunteers to serve each Sunday in the 9:30 am Cornerstone service and every first Sunday in the 10:55 am Festival service. There are no requirements on experience or age for participating in this ministry, and training is available. If you are interested, please contact Pastor DeAndre at deandre@christchurchsl.org.

USHERS – Contact Phil Dolezal | pdolezal@windstream.net

The ministry of the Usher is many. They greet people as they enter into the sanctuary, collect the offering, assist people throughout worship that may need assistance and other duties as needed. Ushers are necessary at all three worship services. We would love for you to consider becoming a part of worship team as a “doorkeeper in the house of the Lord.

FESTIVAL CHOIR SINGERS – Contact Pastor DeAndrew Johnson | deandre@christchurchsl.org

Singing is scientifically proven to be one of the healthiest things you can do. Singing is also one of the ways in which we are invited to join in God’s redemptive work in the world. The hymn writer Mel Bringle puts it this way: Sing a new world into being, sound a bold and hopeful theme. Find a tune for silent yearnings, lend your voice and dare to dream. So, if you love to sing and would dare to dream of God’s reign on earth as in heaven, then come and lend your voice to others as a part of the Festival Choir. This group of adult singers provides musical leadership in the 10:55 am Festival service. There is no audition or previous experience required as the choir is open to adults of all abilities. Regular weekly rehearsals begin August 9 at 7 pm in the Choir Room. For more information about participating in the choir or other music ensembles, contact Pastor DeAndre at deandre@christchurchsl.org.
