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.

Acolyte Schedule

Acolytes will serve from October 2019 until the end of September 2020.  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.
