Celebrate Christ as a Community of Worship, Prayer and Open Dialogue
Our congregational survey revealed that we are a group of highly educated, traditional thinkers who value the rich opportunities to worship in the Episcopal Church. We also learned through this session that we are also a diverse group with varying opinions and have a desire to foster open dialogue and understanding.

- Acolyte – Acolyte means an attendant or follower and Samuel is one of the first examples of an assistant to a priest. Your job as an acolyte is to assist the celebrant (the priest in charge of a worship service) and enhance the worship service to help glorify God. You are a minister of the church who is called to serve God. Therefore, every action you take should be done respectfully and in a dignified manner; the goal is for the attention of the congregation to be on the liturgy and not on the ministers. Serving as an acolyte is a commitment of your time and talent to the Lord’s service, which is greatly appreciated.
- Altar Guild – Liturgy begins and ends with the work of the Altar Guild. To care for the sacred vessels, the bread and the wine, the fair linens and hangings and the candles and torches used for worship in the Sanctuary is far more than a task, it is a true ministry. We are told that all things must be done “properly and in good order.” It is the work of the Altar Guild that makes it possible to do so. The contribution of each Altar Guild member is important; together those contributions are a devotion to the greater glory of God. My thanks, and the thanks of all the parish family of Christ Church, are given for the devotion and dedication of our Altar Guild.
