Altar Guild
Members of the Altar Guild are responsible for behind-the-scenes preparation and clean-up for all worship services at St. George's, which include two services each Sunday, all special days during the liturgical year, weddings, and funerals. The Altar Guild also polishes the silver and brass used in worship and cares for the church linens, hangings, and vesments. Members generally serve one week per month in teams of two. If you are interested in serving, please contact the head of the Altar Guild. New members are always welcome!

Lectors read the scripture lessons, and Intercessors lead the congregation in the Prayers of the People, during Sunday morning and other services. If you are interested in serving as a Lector and/or Intercessor, please contact the church office.

Lay Eucharistic Ministers
Lay Eucharistic Ministers, along with the clergy, serve communion to the congregation. If you are interested in serving as a Lay Eucharistic Minister, please contact Jan Phillips or the church office.

Ushers greet parishioners to services, and help seat those who need assistance. They are also responsible for tidying the church after each service, and retrieving the children and youth who are participating in our Sunday School programs, so that they can rejoin the service and receive communion with their families. If you are interested in serving as an Usher, please contact Herb Dickson or the church office.

Acolytes carry the cross and torches during Sunday and other services. This role is open to any parishioner, but it is a particularly appropriate way for youth to become involved in worship leadership. If you are interested in serving as an Acolyte, please contact the Rev. Kevin Schubert.
