Opportunities to Assist with Worship
Scripture Reader Invitation
Following are some of the ways you can assist with worship when we are gathering in person:
Ushering teams greet people, serve communion, collect 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.
If you are interested in reading the scriptures during worship, indicate your desire on the “Friendship Register” or speak with one of the pastors.
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.
