This month, we would like to bring back the role of Liturgist in our worship services. The Liturgist leads the congregation in the call to worship and offers the invocation at the beginning of worship. The Liturgist is a lay person (non-staff) and serves on a rotating basis. Prior to the Covid pandemic we utilized Liturgists like this on a weekly basis. When we moved to virtual-only worship in March of 2020, the Liturgist role was filled by a staff person and we’ve never stopped doing this. But now it is time to bring back the Liturgist! If you are interested in being on the Liturgist rotation, here is what you need to know:
- We have Liturgists for both traditional and contemporary worship. The traditional worship Liturgist serves at both the 8:00 and 10:30 services. The contemporary worship Liturgist serves at 9:15 only.
- Ministry staff will provide the Call to Worship. The Liturgist is asked to supply the prayer (Invocation).
- Everyone interested in serving as Liturgist is asked to attend an orientation meeting in early August (date TBD).
For now, if you are interested in serving as Liturgist, please let the office know (217-428-4336 or ).
