What can it be like to be a Christian in our tradition? Already an Episcopalian and wondering what to share with others about your faith community? Only have one idea of what a missionary is? Then check out this video:

are all in need of new servants: JOIN US!

Whether clergy or lay, by our baptisms we are all made ministers of Christ's Good News. Serving in worship is a simple and spiritually gratifying 
Eucharistic Minister
way to minister to others in Christ's name. While, like all worthwhile work, it demands commitment and care, serving in worship is not just for the specially educated, pious, or "holy" among us (I know, right?)! The canons of the Church place few restrictions as to age & ability. Each and every week at Good Shepherd we need, on a rotating schedule:

    • Eucharistic Ministers (EMs): teens & adults to help with the distribution of Holy Communion
    • Intercessors: teens & adults to lead the Prayers of the People & help with the distribution of Holy Communion
    • Servers @ 8:00 worship: combines the two roles above with lector
  • Oblationers: individuals, couples, and families to bring the gifts of bread & wine to the altar on behalf of the congregation
  • Ushers: people of all ages to greet, distribute bulletins, and assist worshippers & the clergy in various ways
  • Lectors: teens & adults to read the Old Testament & Epistle lessons
  • Greeters: people of all ages to greet folks as they arrive and at Coffee Fellowship, with particular attention to welcoming newcomers
  • Acolytes: young people 2nd grade & up to assist in worship by carrying the processional cross, torches, and Gospel and helping the clergy around the altar
Please prayerfully consider giving one or two of these ministries a try, whether for the first time or after a break from past service. All are welcome! E-mail the office or call @ 770-786-3278 to let us know what you'd like to do!
