Volunteer Leaders in Worship
We welcome you to join us in dreaming big with our children and youth, as we create opportunities for our young congregants to lead worship via reading Scripture, supporting baptism, greeting congregants, acolyting, singing with the Choir School, assisting with communion, etc. Let us honor our faith journey by living into the baptismal promises we make to our children and youth, encouraging them to grow in faith with love.
