Lectors read the lessons from the pulpit as a part of our worship service. You will be sent an email with the readings for that Sunday attached as a PDF earlier in the week so that you can read and practice. On the Sunday you are scheduled to read, attend the service you are scheduled for as normal. Avoid sitting in the balcony so that you can get to the pulpit fairly quickly. After the greeting and prayer of the day, walk up to the pulpit and adjust the microphone as needed. Speak clearly and use a good pace- not too fast, and not too slow. If you stumble, just keep going. After you are done with the readings, you can return to your seat. Click HERE to sign up.
Greeters serve 20 minutes before the scheduled start of worship services. Duties include smiling and welcoming folks. One person should be posted at the front doors and one at the ramp leading to the sanctuary. It's just that easy! Click HERE to sign up.
Arrive 20 minutes before the scheduled service time.
Direct people to bulletins, offering box, etc.
Approximately 10 minutes before the service starts, ring the bell located on the stairs going to the balcony.
During Communion, dismiss the pews from the center aisle beginning at the front of the sanctuary and work your way to the back.
Count all people in attendance, including the pastors, volunteers, musicians, sound person, balcony, etc. and make a note on and attendance slip. This can be turned in with the offering. The best time to do this is during the sermon.
People can place any offerings in the box. Ensure that the offerings are locked in the office. You can also give the offerings to a pastor or office staff.
Keep an eye out for any safety or security concerns. Please remain in the ushering area during the whole service and not sit elsewhere in the sanctuary or balcony. This allows the ushers to keep an eye on who is entering and exiting the church.
After service is over, and if applicable, straighten the bulletins and put out for the next service.
Straighten the pews by putting materials in their correct place and throwing away any trash.

During the prayer portion of the service, assistants should quietly leave the service to wash their hands/sanitize and then assemble at the west door to the altar. At the end of the prayers and prior to the beginning of the communion service, assistants should line up between the pulpit and altar, ready to receive communion. The pastors will serve you first. You will be handed either a tray of wine or a plate of bread. If you will be handing out bread, place it in the communicant's open hand and say- "The body of Christ, given for you." If you are handing out wine or juice, had the communicant the cup and say- "The blood of Christ, shed for you." The person will let you know if they would rather have juice, otherwise people generally take wine. Click HERE to sign up.
