The acolyte ministry originated from Old Testament times. The Scriptures tell us of the prophet Samuel assisting Eli the priest, and of Elijah being assisted by Elisha. The word “acolyte” comes from the Greek word “akolouthos,” which means a servant or attendant who waits on another. Being an acolyte is much more than just lighting candles. It teaches young people that they are an important part of the worship of God.
Children in 4th-6th grades are invited to serve as acolytes for the 11:15 sanctuary services. New acolyte training will occur on Sunday, September 19 at 12:30 p.m. To sign up for acolyte training, click HERE.
Current and prospective acolytes can download a copy of the Acolyte handbook HERE.
Most acolytes serve once time per month at 11:15am service. Parents may use the sign up link above to choose a service or email Allison Johnson to set up times to serve or to inquire about training.
We hope that by serving as an acolyte, these young people will experience a sense of spiritual belonging and fulfillment in serving their church. Through this experience they can make new friends, have fun, and grow in their commitment to their faith.
