In Worship

There are many opportunities to serve the members of our community during our Sunday morning worship time. Childcare is available if necessary for you to join us during rehearsals during the week and on Sunday morning.


Acolyte

Normally the acolyte serves by lighting and extinguishing the candles at the Traditional Worship Service. At the discretion of the pastor, the acolyte may also assist in other portions of the worship service. It is the custom at Asbury for the acolytes to be young persons, giving them an early opportunity to be participants in the service. Adults, however, also may serve as acolytes if the need arises. To find out how you can get your child involved in the worship service as an acolyte, please contact the Acolyte Coordinator found in the Leadership Directory.
