ACOLYTE TRAINING & SERVICE
This important church service is best suited for children in fourth grade or older. Acolytes are an essential part of the 10 AM worship experience. They are trained to know what they are doing and why they do it.
Quarterly visits bring joy to residents of local elder care home with short Sunday visits.
