Would you like to be an acolyte?

The word acolyte is derived from the Greek word acolytos, meaning companion, attendant, or helper. The Acolyte ministry has its roots in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible, where the prophet Samuel is seen assisting Eli, the Levite priest, and Elisha is seen assisting Elijah the Prophet.

In the Methodist traditions, acolytes participate in the worship service by lighting and extinguishing the altar candles. In these traditions, the lighting of the altar candles in the worship service is a symbol of Jesus’ coming into the presence of the worshiping community. Before the extinguishing of the last altar candles, the acolytes relight their "candle lighter" and then process out into the narthex. This symbolizes that Jesus Christ is for all people everywhere. It also symbolizes the light of Jesus Christ going out into the world where believers are called to serve. Methodist acolytes to wear the traditional cassock and cotta.Acolytes are on an every-other-month schedule, and the occasional extra service when someone is sick.

It’s a great way to earn community service, too!

Please email Elizabeth Reid at: [email protected] call her at 480-961-9258

We’ll get you trained, and acolyting!
