I want to be close to God
Bob Shadduck is the coordinator of this vital ministry involving over 100 of our young people. Training takes place in late winter/early spring. Parents are required to attend the first training session with their child(ren). Installation of first year altar servers takes place in October.
Hospitality Ministers welcome us as we arrive to worship, helping us find our way around the worship space and into comfortable seats, facilitating our processions (especially at Communion), and handing out worship aids and bulletins. They help all of us be responsible stewards by taking up the collection at the liturgy. This ministry, coordinated by Paul Collier, is open to new members.

Environment ministers make our worship space beautiful and conducive to prayer and worship. The creative use of plants, fabrics, candles and other items establishes a sense of the season. This ministry is coordinated by Pam Kingsley and Deacon Neil Kingsley and is always open to new members.
