Volunteer at CCA

Below are several ways you can volunteer to serve within the Christ Church congregation. Just contact the church office and we’ll connect you with the right ministry leader.

Worship


Acolytes
Young people in the sixth grade through high school are encouraged to participate in worship services by carrying the cross and torches, and by serving at the altar.
Altar Guild
Members are invited by the rector to serve as the priests’ liturgical partners in making the worship life of the parish run smoothly. The spiritual commitment required ensures our worship space is maintained reverently, and includes the care of sacramental vessels, linens, and vestments.
Chalice Bearers
Chalice bearers are appointed by the clergy and licensed by the bishop to administer the chalice during the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
Choir (8:45 a.m.)
The choir provides musical leadership for the congregation during the first worship service.
Connections Team
Greet visitors before and after worship services, provide them with information about the parish, and help them meet others. We especially welcome families to sign up and serve together in this way.
Eucharistic Visitors
These specially-trained lay chalice bearers bring the Sacrament to parishioners who are physically unable to come to church.
Flower Guild
This guild provides the floral arrangements for all worship services and decorates the church for special occasions.
Godly Play
In this Montessori-based curriculum, a storyteller memorizes and presents an assigned story for 4 years – 3rd grade children during the worship service, and a doorkeeper is in to assist.
Lay Readers
Lay readers participate in worship by reading the appointed Scripture readings for the service.
Music Team (11:15 a.m.)
The music team provides musical leadership for the congregation during the second worship service.
Prayer Ministry
These groups pray regularly for those on our prayer list, and also for healing during our worship services and in homes.
Sound Team
Set up and control sound equipment for worship, record the sermons, and put equipment away after worship. Training provided for those High School age and older.
Ushers
Ushers welcome people to worship services, provide bulletins, collect the offering, and assist those with physical limitations.

Christian Formation


Children’s Ministry
Teachers and assistants serve two to three Sundays per month. Teachers lead in prayer, a Bible story, and discussions, and usually prepare a simple craft for their classes. Assistants serve with the teachers and help the children as needed each week.
Youth Ministry
Adult volunteers teach Sunday morning classes for Jr. & Sr. High students, help with activities, and serve as chaperones.
Community Outreach
Join with other parishioners in serving our community through partner organizations, including ministries to the homeless, the hungry, and refugees.
Small Groups
Meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis with parishioners in your area to grow together as disciples of and support one another in the ups and downs that each season brings.

Parish Life

Parish Retreat Committee
This group of parishioners helps to organize and plan for the annual parish retreat in the early fall.
Sunday Morning Coffee Time
