Opportunities to Assist with Worship
Following are some of the ways you can assist with worship when we are gathering in person:
Ushering teams greet people, serve communion, collect the offering, and help make our church a warm and welcoming place. Ushering is an excellent way to meet people and to participate in the church community. Sign up using SignUp Genius.
Anyone who would like to read scripture during the Festival Service is invited to participate. Select the date you’ll read scripture at our indoor, in-person worship service and sign up using SignUp Genius. We also ask that you record yourself reading the same scripture for the online worship service. We can record you in person at the church if you prefer.
Children, youth and adults may serve as bell ringers, ringing the hour at the start of the worship service.
The responsibility for the flowers and altar decorations that enrich our Sunday worship lies with the flower committee. Members of the congregation may ask for specific dates to memorialize or honor someone or to commemorate special events like a birth or an anniversary. You may make your own arrangements or have members of United Church’s flower committee decorate for you.
Two counters count the offering after each service, provide the Business Manager with the data, and deposit the offering in the bank. At least one counter must be a current or former Trustee.
Advent Reflections Booklet
Our annual Advent Devotional contains daily reflections written by members of our congregation.
Advent Wreath Lighting
Each year we celebrate the Advent Season through the lighting of Advent candles and reading of devotionals at the beginning of worship. Families, individuals, and groups are welcome to participate.
Stories of Transformation
Occasionally throughout the year, lay people are invited to share a story of transformation in worship – a time when your life was changed by God’s grace.
