Ministries - Worship

Easter flowers on church altar

The Worship Ministry at St. Paul's UCC works closely with the pastor to plan and implement meaningful worship experiences throughout the church year.

The Blessing of Gathering

As you enter our sanctuary, use the pre-service time to prepare your heart and mind through quiet time and prayer.

We welcome your online prayer requests. If you are attending worship in person, find a prayer request card in the pew rack to fill out and hand to an usher before the service, who will see that the pastor receives it.

Ways to Participate

Worship leader/lay reader

 

Volunteers read the worship service and Bible passages pertaining to that week's service. 

Acolyte  

 

Acolytes perform specific functions, primarily lighting and extinguishing altar candles. The youth serving as acolytes are members of our First and Second Year Confirmation classes.

Tech Team

 

Volunteers become proficient in handling the audio, video and streaming needs of worship services in the sanctuary.

Decorating Committee  

 

This team decorates the sanctuary seasonally and for Advent and Lent. 

Sacristy Committee

 

This committee prepares the elements for Holy Communion, which we celebrate on the first Sunday of every month and on other special dates during the church year. They also change the paraments throughout the church calendar. Paraments are the colored cloths that adorn the pulpit, lectern, altar, and Lord’s table.
