Looking for a way to serve during church services? Check out the places Solomon needs your help on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights!
Ushers arrive 30 minutes early to their chosen worship service. They are responsible for greeting attendees, passing out bulletins, collecting the offering, dismissing the pews during Holy Communion, and taking offering money to the bank at the end of the service.
Communion Set-Up, Service, and Clean-Up
People who set-up Communion may do so when it fits their schedule – the day before Sunday service, or the morning of! There are detailed and easy-to-follow instructions posted in the sacristy and in the green book. People are also needed to assist Pastor in serving Holy Communion by distributing the wine. Finally, volunteers are needed to clean up Holy Communion at the end of the service. Detailed instructions are available for this task as well. Have questions on how these things are done? Our Worship Life Committee would be more than happy to help!
Calling all avid readers! Volunteers are needed each week to read the scripture passages at the lectern. Those who choose to serve in this way will recieve the scriptures the week before in order to prepare for Sunday’s service.
The Cantor has a special job – he or she leads the congregation in song! The Cantor will sing the leadership parts of the Kyrie and the Canticle of Praise. Interested? Contact our music director.
Special care is taken by several teams to keep our sanctuary looking beautiful. Our Banner Team creates and cares for our sanctuary’s many banners that are used throughout the year. The Altar & Vestments Team changes the vestments of the altar with the church calendar – as well as laundering the materials, polishing the silver, and caring for our candles. Contact Christy Blechinger or Janet Ribbeck for more information.
Acolytes are members of the assembly who have been entrusted with various tasks, including lighting and extinguishing the candles, helping with the offering plates, assisting in the distribution of Holy Communion, and other special duties on any given Sunday, Advent, or Lenten worship. These important people are usually Solomon’s Confirmation students, Grades 7 & 8. For more information on Solomon’s Confirmation program, click here.
