Worship Ministry

This important part of the worship service is offered to youth in grades 4 through 8 who have taken the acolyte & cross-bearer training sessions.  As part of the Confirmation class focus is on serving, 6th, 7th, & 8th graders are encouraged to sign-up for at least four worship services per year.

Acolyte & Crossbearer Instructions

 Altar Guild

Altar Guild members care for the altar paraments, candles, and communion supplies that accompany worship.  They ensure that the sanctuary is physically ready for worship.

Communion Servers

God’s grace and forgiveness are found in the Sacrament of the Altar.  Servers help the worshiper to partake of this Holy Meal.

Greeters provide the warm welcome that lets all worshipers know that they are God’s children and are valued as brothers/sisters in Christ.  Greeters are front-line ambassadors of God’s love to those who come to Good Shepherd for worship.

Readers proclaim God’s Word to us at all worship services.  The public reading of scripture helps us to define who we are and what we believe as followers of Christ.

Sunday Hospitality

At Good Shepherd we welcome members and guests to share coffee and donuts after each service on Sunday.  This is a time for fellowship that we really enjoy. We would love for you to join us in assisting with setting and cleaning up the coffee and refreshments on Sunday!

These members greet at the sanctuary doors, hand out the bulletins, collect the offertory, and are responsible for assuring the worship service is dignified, reverent, and well-organized.
