Worship Ministries"There are different abilities to perform service, but the same God gives ability to everyone for their particular service." (1 Corinthians 12:6)
At Epiphany Church we have been blessed with a core of volunteers who are responsible for the ministries on Sunday morning and our ministry to the wider community. There is a lot more to be done at Epiphany church. We are always looking for more volunteers.
On any given Sunday morning we need about 15 volunteers to make Epiphany’s worship experience rewarding. The clergy of Epiphany Church rely on a core of volunteers to perform some of these ministries each week. Listed are the various ministries and instructions for carrying them out.
Sunday Morning Ministries
The acolytes serve and assist the priest with the rituals of our worship service. They light and extinguish altar candles, ring the bells to signify service is about to begin, lead the procession at the start of service, lead the Gospel procession during the service, and lead the recession at the conclusion of service. The acolytes help the priest prepare for the Holy Eucharist.
The Altar Guild serves God by preparing and tending the place where his people worship. The Altar Guild is an offering of time and talent, and the ministry of love in the name of Christ.
The Barbara Ashby Agape Liturgical Dancers, composed of female members of the church, share their gifts of dance to enhance the worship experience at Epiphany. The dancers integrate liturgical dance into the ministry of the church as a mechanism for spiritual growth and development and for outreach.
Our volunteer choir lifts their voices joyfully to praise God and to add harmony to our worship service. .
