If you are in 3rd or older, you are encouraged to participate in this important ministry. It’s a great way for kids to help during worship and to learn how “church” works!
Children who are encouraged to participate in the Acolyte program. These are the children who carry the light into the Sanctuary at the beginning of the each worship service and help the pastors with Holy Communion. This is an exciting way for children to learn the order of worship and to be an important member of the worship team. Acolyte Academy is held twice a year.
