Assisting In Worship
Each worship service at All Saints is carefully orchestrated and composed of many parts. Depending upon the service, individuals, sometimes referred to as "lay people" or "the laity" help assist in worship in one of the following ways:
- Chalice Bearer
- Master of Ceremonies
- Lector (Lay Reader) - Old & New Testament, Psalms, & Prayers )
- Gift Bearers
- Altar Guild
- Choirs - (Chancel, Children & Youth, Bells, Ministers of Music)
- Welcome Table Assistant (Welcomer)
- Offertory Bearer
- Mover/Shaker (AxS Service only)
- Projector Operator (AxS Service only)
Although not actually considered a part of the worship service, the "Coffee & Conversation" segment which follows each 10:30 service on Sundays throughout the year is vital to our parish and parishioners and it's popularity continues to grow. For one thing, it gives people a chance to get to know one another better. In addition it provides an excellent opportunity to chat with or be introduced to someone we don't know quite as well as we might like to.
As you can see, the laity plays an important roll in all of our worship services at All Saints. If you would like to learn more about how you might participate in one or more of the above ministries, including "Coffee & Conversation", a good place to start is by calling the church office at 402-396-8612 or by e-mailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We invite you take the first step. You will be glad you did.
