Christian worship is not simply a service led by pastors; it is the work of all the people in the worshiping community.
Everyone is invited to participate with their voices, bodies, and hearts.
Some are called to serve in particular roles during the service, such as communion assistants, readers, musicians, ushers, or acolytes. These opportunities are open to everyone and give you a chance to share your gifts.
We learn by doing.
Participating in worship, and taking on a servant leadership role, is a learning experience. You are drawn deeper into the stories, rituals, and practices of our Christian faith. This is the foundation of our faith formation at Glen Cary.
