WORSHIP MINISTRIES
 
The word “liturgy,” which we also use to refer to our worship service, means “work of the people,” and our services quite literally require the work of many people each week.  Serving in a worship service either in front of or behind the scenes can bring new meaning and perspective to our personal worship experience, and there are a variety of ways to take part.
