Within

We also have many ways to serve inside the church. We have an active Church Council, Lay Assistant Ministers, Ministry Teams, Altar Guild, and many other opportunities to get plugged in! Call the church office at 970-482-9692 for more information or pick up a copy of the ministry teams booklet. 

 

Church Council

An executive team of president, vice president, secretary, financial secretary, and treasurer, along with representatives from each ministry team make up the church council. Terms last for two years and can be renewed once for a total of four years. To learn more about the Church Council, visit their page. 

 

Lay Assistant Ministers (LAM)

Read the liturgy during the service; prepare the prayers of the church; assist with distributing communion. Most LAMs assist one Sunday service every other month.

 

Readers

Read the prepared texts during each service, including the Psalm. Readers are scheduled for one Sunday service each month for six months. A different team takes over every six months.

 

Altar Guild

Set up the altar with appropriate linens; prepare and clean-up communion; prepare materials and font water for baptisms; maintain altar and baptismal candles. Commitment of one month per year. Set up trays on Saturday (about 30 minutes) and prepare altar prior to each service (5-10 minutes) on Sunday and clean up after last service (about 30 minutes).

 

Acolytes
