Service Spotlight: Acolytes and Acolyte Masters serve our church in a special way

Acolytes are a valuable ministry at Christ Church. By assisting with worship, it's a special way for young people to have a deeper connection with their church. Our church community also enjoys seeing our young people serve as active leaders during worship. The tasks are easy, and the reward is great! Acolytes must be a rising 4th grader or older. Adults are also needed to serve as Acolyte Masters, helping the acolytes on Sunday mornings. Any adult can serve as an acolyte master and many parents of acolytes find this to be a meaningful role.

The basic tasks are listed below. And tell your kiddo not to worry! Training is provided and Acolyte Masters are on hand to help Acolytes on Sunday mornings. We will make sure children and youth feel prepared to serve.

  • Light and extinguish the alter candles 
  • Carry the cross, banners or torches at the beginning and ending of the service 
  • Assist in preparation and helping at communion
