Ways to Serve

  • Altar Guild: The Altar Guild ministry is for young and old alike, and is something that a child could assist a parent with. Serve once every four to six weeks and set up the elements that we use for communion each week, as well as set out the appropriate hangings and hymn numbers in the worship space.
  • Greeter & Usher: Welcome worshippers to Holy Cross with a friendly face, help with directions, and collect the offering. Perfect for individuals, couples and families.
  • Layreader & Chalice Bearer: Lead in worship through the reading of Scripture and the Prayers and serve the chalice during communion. High Schoolers & adults serve once every 4-6 weeks.
