Indoor specific Worship serving opportunities
In this role, you’re the first face folks will see when they arrive for worship. You’ll smile and welcome them to St. John. You will also give directions if they need them.
To be an effective greeter, you have to be there when people arrive. Please arrive – about 20 minutes or so before the service. It’s a great way to meet people and help them feel welcomed.
To be an usher, you’ll need to be at church about 20 minutes before the beginning of worship. You’ll greet folks as they enter the sanctuary, answer any questions they may have and help them find a place to sit if they need help.
During the service, you may also be responsible for passing the collection plates during the offering and coordinating when people can go to the front of the church for communion. Ushers also count and record how many people are present.
After the service, you’ll be responsible for tidying up the pews. It’s another great way to meet people, help them feel welcomed and play an important role in our worship services.
In this role, you’d be helping distribute wine or wafer/bread during communion. Most of the time our communion is by intinction. That means as members come to the front of the church, you’ll either hold the chalice for them and let them dip their wafer in the wine while saying, “The blood of Christ, shed for you.” Or hand them a wafer/bread and say, “The body of Christ, broken for you.)
As a reader, you’ll share the good news with the rest of the congregation by reading the first and second lessons, as well as the Psalm. You’ll receive the readings during the week leading up to the service, so you’ll have plenty of time to prepare.
(Out of an abundance of caution, we are not currently offering this fellowship opportunity.)
As the coffee host, you’ll be serving coffee and other goodies to people after the service as we gather for brief fellowship to chat with others, catch up with friends and more. It’s a great way to bring a smile to somebody’s face by giving them something to drink and/or eat as they mingle with you and others.
This team prepares the altar for worship services. You’ll put up hymn numbers, make sure the flowers have water, set up communion, change the altar linens and paraments as needed and set out the items needed for baptism.
If you’re interested in any of these opportunities, please stop in the church office or call us at 920-336-1082. As we return to indoor worship you can also sign up at www.signupgenius.com. Search for firstname.lastname@example.org
