Leaders at TrinityGod calls the hearts and hands of many people to prepare for worship opportunities on Sundays. Behind the scene there are choir rehearsals, setting the Table, baking bread and wine ... In short, many hands make light work and joyful service. You may be inspired to help...
Here, we define the terms and see what they do:
Chancel Guild: Arrange the Table and ceremonial vessels before the Sunday morning service and clean up afterward. Sometimes volunteers may deliver altar flowers to parishioners who are ill.
Choir: Our enthusiastic choir members volunteer their time and talent. Rehearsal is Sunday morning right before service. The staff Music Director engages all voices with a variety of musical styles. Concerts, special guests, professional presentations, dance, drums … are all part of our offerings to God and one another.
Hospitality: Prepare refreshments for after the services - we call it coffee hour. Our encounter with God continues after the service when we encounter God's creation in each person. Whether bought or home-baked, the food brings people together and the conversation makes it holy.
Lector: Prepare for and read selected passages or lead the prayers at morning or evening services.
Acolyte: Assist at the Sunday morning service. Children and adults can participate.
Chalice Bearer: Serve wine at communion on Sunday morning.
Greeter: Greet people attending the services, pass out worship guides. This is a good way for anyone to get to know others and to begin the worship experience on a high note.
Altar Flowers: Call the Church Office to donate in memory of, or to honor a loved one.
Child care: children of all ages deserve special care and opportunity to learn our heritage. We emphasize the basic and important stories of the scriptures. Teachers of children are required to complete Safe-Church training.
Youth Group: children ages 12+ need a place and people to help them discover and voice their doubts and fears. Anyone who works with youth are required to complete Safe-Church training and work in teams.
Adult Ed: open to everyone who wants to puzzle out the problems of life.
Eucharistic Minister: take the Eucharist from the communal gathering directly to the sick and shut in.
