Worship elders provide assistance in the public worship services of the congregation. Worship elders open and close the building for worship and turn lights on and off, prior to and following worship. They assist the acolytes, relay the names of those needing individual communion to the pastors, assist with the rite of Baptism and Communion, and assist the usher teams. The elders meet as needed at various locations for about 1-2 hours. To become an elder, a person must be a male member of the congregation. Contact Head Elder Jim Kuderer.
