Serving in Worship
Explore and expand your spiritual journey by serving St. David’s
There are many ways to serve at St. David’s so don’t worry, there is something for everyone! Participating in church ministry can strengthen your faith and empower you as you follow your spiritual path.
WAYS TO SERVE & GROW YOUR FAITH:
Lay Eurcharistic Ministers (LEMS)
Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMS) Become part of the worship service by participating in the Holy Eucharist acting as Chalice Bearer, distributing the consecrated wine (the blood of Christ) and assisting the rector as needed during the service.
A great way to immerse yourself in the Holy Spirit while serving your church and church family in the breaking of the bread.
Become part of the worship service by reading the scripture from the Old and New Testaments, leading the congregation in the collective reciting of psalms, and saying the Prayers of the People. Be the voice, providing God’s word—a truly wonderful experience!
Open to all ages (especially children), acolytes lead the church procession with the cross and Gospel Book, collect the offering plate, and assist the rector as needed. Acolyte service is a great way for anyone to become familiar with the service while participating in it.
Ushers greet and assist people as they enter the church for worship service. The usher ensures that all attendees find and navigate to an available seat that suits their needs. They also assist in the collection of the offering and guide the congregation in receiving Communion. When the service ends, the usher opens the exit doors.
If you're energetic and enjoy the social aspect of church, this is for you! Greeters are the first to meet people as they arrive to church for worship. Help get the service off to the right start, provide a smile, hand shake, hug and a bulletin. This is such a rewarding ministry—providing a positive, friendly hello can make someone’s day a great one... including yours!
Are you interested in working behind the camera? Do you want to develop your skills in the art of video-making? This ministry is for you. For St. David’s to provide expanded access to the 10 a.m. Sunday service, we need an operator available each Sunday to operate the worship cam, streaming the 10am service to all who would like to attend wherever they are. No technical knowledge needed to tackle this adventure, just a desire to experience God’s love and share it with our online St. David’s family.
