Risen Savior invites all middle school youth to be an Acolyte!
Acolytes at Risen Savior light the candles at the beginning of the worship service, and extinguish the candles at the end. They are prepared to carry the cross in processionals when given the opportunity.
Why would this be an important role in worship? It is a small, but important task, and an opportunity to serve at the altar of our Lord.
Acolytes are prepared to be silent servants, watching and helping when given opportunity. In worship they express the maturing process of serving others.
If your youth is not yet trained and would like to serve as an acolyte, we invite them to attend a training session. After training, they will be scheduled on a rotating basis, receiving schedules from the church office. Currently, acolytes serve at the 11:00 am service.
