Lay people at St. George’s take important roles in the morning worship, at both the 8am and 10am services. These ministries include:
Greeters: Welcome parishioners and newcomers at the door for both services, guide people to seats and to Communion if necessary, receive the Offertory Plates, and tidy the pews after the services.
Readers: The Old Testament, Psalm, and Epistle are read by lay people.
Prayers of the People: Led by lay people and include the biddings for the day and the personal requests recorded by parishioners in a book made available for that purpose.
Administrants: Serve both the bread and the chalice (wine) at communion. Administrant volunteers are approved by Parish Council and licensed by the Bishop.
Prayer Ministry: During the communion time at the 10 am Sunday service, two Prayer Ministers are available in The Lady Chapel to pray with those requesting specific prayer for themselves or for others.
Counters: Meet after the 10 am service to count the monetary offering from both morning services.
Offertory Supervisor: Rings the bell before the 10 am service, assists with the counting of the offertory, fills in the deposit sheet and deposits the offering at the bank.
Over 50 people are involved in these lay ministries.
