Assisting in Worship

Everyone is encouraged to participate in all aspect of our worship services.  Please contact the church office and we can steer you in the right direction if you would like to participate.  View some opportunities below:

USHER

The usher can be the first smiling face to welcome people to Redeemer.   Ushers can choose their preferred service time to usher.  Generally, if you choose to usher, you will only have to commit to one service per month if there are 4 Sundays in a given month…twice when there are 5 Sundays.  Arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled service and stay 10-15 minutes afterwards to clean up.  For more information about how to become an usher contact Brian May at 248-321-5885 / bmay000@gmail.com.

READER

Experience the joy of sharing the Good News by reading the scripture lessons for the day during worship. Please sign-up on the reader sheets in the Town Square, or call the church office to find out the available dates.  Make sure you provide your email as the church office will email you the readings the Friday before worship.

ALTAR GUILD

Ministry of the Altar Guild prepares the Sanctuary and Chapel for worship.  They prepare the altar for receiving the sacrament, they make sure all the candles are filled and properly prepared and they also assist with tidying up the pews.   Typically, an Altar Guild member serves with others on a “team” that works once every six months.  There are six teams that cover only two months of the year.  Each Altar Guild “team” has a team leader who works with their team members to create a schedule so each Sunday/Monday of their assigned month is covered.   Generally, no individual team member serves every Sunday of their assigned month.  Also, team members normally do not work alone in carrying out their duties. If you are interested in being a part of this sacred and fulfilling group – we’d love to have you!  Please contact Pam Tyndall in the church office.
