Acolytes


2018-2019 Acolytes

Jesus said, I am the light of the world.
                                                                                  John 8:12


Acolytes bring the light of Christ into the worship experience and assist with baptisms and offering. Traditionally Bethany fifth graders serve as Acolytes. To serve as acolyte 5th graders and their parents are expected to attend an initial training and three acolyte meetings.

Initial training and practice in the New Worship Center (choose one):

  • Thursday, September 6 at 6:00pm to 7:30pm
  • Sunday, September 9 at 12:30pm to 2:00pm
  • Wednesday, September 12 at 6:00pm to 7:30pm
  • Sunday, September 16 at 12:30pm to 2:00pm

Acolyte Meetings
Acolyte Meetings are scheduled three times a year. Acolytes and parents learn about worship and seasons of the church year. Parents attend with Acolyte.

  • Sundays, November 11, March 3, & May 5 at 11:00-12:00 in room D209/210

Acolyte Schedule
Acolytes will serve from October 2018 until the end of September 2019.  Acolytes are scheduled to serve in pairs. The acolyte schedule is made with Sign up Genius. A link for the schedule will be emailed to acolytes. If you regularly attend the 8:15 service, you may sign up for that service exclusively. If you attend 9:30 or 11:00, please split your sign ups between "your" service and the 8:15 service. A weekly acolyte reminder is sent to all acolyte families.  If you need to switch or unable to serve reply to all to find a substitute.
