The ushers are available to help the congregation and visitors alike to be fully immersed in their worship experience on Sunday morning. This may include handing out bulletins, assisting with seating, answering questions, providing directions to areas of the church, collecting the offering, and occasionally delivering communion.

Liturgist and Host
Normally the acolyte serves by lighting and extinguishing the candles at the Traditional Worship Service. At the discretion of the pastor, the acolyte may also assist in other portions of the worship service. It is the custom at Asbury for the acolytes to be young persons, giving them an early opportunity to be participants in the service. Adults, however, also may serve as acolytes if the need arises. To find out how you can get your child involved in the worship service as an acolyte, please contact the Acolyte Coordinator found in the Leadership Directory.
