Online Lay Worship Ministries

Online Lay Worship Ministries

In the age of yesteryear, when we would gather for worship in person in a common space, we had many different people that served in one capacity or another. From altar guild to acolytes to choir members to readers to lay eucharistic ministers, we had a veritable army of people that helped make worship happen at Church of the Epiphany!

While our worship services are different because they are in online spaces, it still takes many people to make worship happen! Thus, we invite you to join us in these ministries by signing up as a reader, a petitioner, a greeter/usher, or as a member of the AV Team.

The prayers are typically ready by a member of the congregation, and the whole congregation responds…

Online Greeter/Usher Ministry

On a normal Sunday morning, people arrive at our parish and walk through the wide middle doors that are open for all to enter. Just outside those doors, you will find dedicated lay people welcoming you to our parish inviting you to let us know how we can help you navigate our worship. Our online prayer spaces are even more open, and we want to make them even more welcoming with an online greeters/ushers ministry. Our online greeters will join…

Online Audio/Visual Team

On a normal Sunday morning, we rely on the mechanics of audio systems to help us hear the readings, the Gospel, the sermon, and the prayers of our worship. As we shift to online worship space(s), the need for good audio and visual content becomes even more important. Our online audio/visual team helps us pull off magic every Sunday by muting and unmuting specific microphones, highlighting different video feeds throughout the service, and helping us to learn how to get…
