Acolyte

What is an Acolyte?

The word acolyte comes from a Greek word that means attendant or helper. As an acolyte at Matthews United Methodist Church, you will participate in a special part of the worship service. You will be part of a team that includes the pastors, choirs, ushers and others who lead worship each week.

How do I SIGN UP?

If you would like to serve in worship as an Acolyte, please contact Meg Moore, our Worship Coordinator at Meg@MatthewsUMC.org.  Practice Sessions are scheduled on the second Saturday of each month in the sanctuary at 11:00 a.m. Children in 3rd through 7th grades are invited to attend this practice session. All are welcome, no experience needed!

Attendance at practice is encouraged to instill confidence while learning about the elements of worship.
