Assisting Ministers and Sacristans Needed
If you’re interested in assisting with worship in a non-musical way, we are always looking for more people to serve as assisting ministers and sacristans. Assisting ministers participate directly in the worship service by reading prayers and serving communion. Sacristans work behind the scenes preparing for worship, lighting the altar candles, and sometimes serving communion.
Right now we could especially use one or two additional sacristans to join the rotation. If you are interested in participating in either of these ministries, please contact Phil Holzman at firstname.lastname@example.org
Baptism … If you are interested in having your child baptized at GA, you can contact Phil Holzman at the church office. To read more about baptism, and to fill out information for the church office once you’ve scheduled a baptism, you can download this form…Baptism brochure
The Lutheran tradition of worship encourages the participation of many people in each worship service. People serve as Assistant Ministers, Sacristans, Acolytes, Lectors (readers), Ushers, and Greeters. (Our Assisting Ministers, Acolytes, and Lectors assist with the distribution of communion each Sunday.)
