Ushers, Readers and More

Everyone at Trinity has the opportunity to serve in some way to support the worship services.

Ushers, readers, communion assistants sign up to help at a given service for one month.



Anyone can be an usher at Trinity with just a little training. Ushers greet people and hand out the bulletin as they come into worship. ushers receive the offering and bring forward the communion elements. To find out what an usher does, just as one!


Lectionary Readers

Are you comfortable reading the Bible in front of a group of people? If so, please consider becoming one of our lectionary readers. A reader goes to our pulpit to read the Old Testament Lesson, the Psalm of the day and the New Testament Epistle. The reader also helps with the distribution of communion.



Middle school youth serve as acolytes at Trinity. Training provided.


Communion Assistants

On Sundays when communion is offered two members of the congregation help the pastors and the acolytes serve the communion elements. This requires no special learning or skill, just the ability to follow simple directions.


Altar Guild

The Altar Guild prepares the communion elements and makes sure these are placed on the altar before each communion service.


Altar Flowers

Altar flowers are given by members of the congregation and include dedications. A rose is placed on the altar for the birth of a child.
