There are many ways that you can assist in worship at Good Shepherd. Please contact the church office or Fr. Jay if you are interested and willing to serve.

  • Usher/ Greeter
  • Intercessors (leads the Prayers of the People)
  • Lector (reads the Old Testament and / or New Testament reading)
  • Altar Guild (prepares the altar and items for Communion)
  • Acolytes¬†–¬†Everyone age six and above are invited to serve at the altar as acolytes at all parish worship services; we consider this a vital part of our Christian education program. After training, they participate by carrying the torches, the cross, incense and censor and by assisting clergy at the Eucharist. If you or your child are interested contact Kourtni Brown, ce@goodshepherdnewton.org.
  • Adult Altar Servers (assist the Priest during services, serve as lector, and guide the acolytes to ensure they serve well)
