At most services, the LEM reads the prayers and helps in the distribution of communion. At the 8:00 service the LEM also generally reads the assigned scripture lessons. Lectors read at the 10:30 service and occasionally at 8:00.

Altar Guild

Working together in small groups, rotating teams prepare the church for services in two week assignments about every 6 weeks. Duties include maintaining altar vessels, hangings, and linens, and presenting elements at the offertory during worship.
