ACOLYTES

Children in the 3rd – 6th grade serve each Sunday as an Acolyte.  The children light and extinguish the candles on the altar table and assist with the Sunday offering.  The Acolytes bring God’s light into our service and carry it out to remind us God is with us as we leave each Sunday service. See below for the monthly schedule.
