The word "acolyte" is taken from an ancient Greek word that meant "companion," "attendant," or "helper." Acolytes work closely with our pastors and others who are on the morning worship team to help the congregation to worship God. Training for new acolytes is held in the fall, and all acolytes are assigned services on a rotational basis.
