WORSHIP

Acolytes

These are wonderful servant-hearted people who love to help the mass flow smoothly.  Acolytes light and extinguish candles, carry the cross as “crucifer”, lead the procession and recession, assist with setting the table for communion and ring the bell when the Trinity of God is referenced.

While acolytes are often children or teens, adults can be acolytes too.  Acolytes where a robe and are there to help the celebrating Priest and Deacon with other needs that they may have during the service.

If you or your child would be interested in being an acolyte, please call or email Deacon Karl Gustafson

Altar Guild

Our Altar Guild has several teams that are responsible for up to 5 services every weekend and for special events throughout the year. These teams prepare the altar, organize the sacristy, order supplies and prepare the Sanctuary for various seasons and events. This behind-the-scenes, but crucial role is vital to our All Saints and we appreciate all the effort, care, and reverence that goes into caring for our altar and sanctuary. If you have questions or would like to be a part of the Altar Guild, please call 702-878-2373 and your information will be routed to the Altar Guild team leader, Nancy Lacombe.

Choir

All Saints is proud to have a rich and diverse choral tradition.   We sing traditional 4 part anthems along with a mix of world, jazz, and modern songs.   An interest and passion for better worship and to know Christ are primary reasons to join.  Fellowship in a small community makes music fun.  All Saints’ Choir has 15 to 20 members that represent every generation from teenagers to 90 years old with people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds.   Musical understanding helps, but a Spirit that is willing to learn is key.  Choir rehearsals are Thursday from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM.  The choir sings from the Sunday after Labor Day to Pentecost Day and is off in the summer.    Please consider joining the choir and learn the many facets of God through our diverse musical heritage.

All Saints Congregational Song
Congregation song at All Saints is liturgical, biblical based, and diverse.   All Saints uses the full spectrum of resources for congregation song.  Every hymnal available is used.   This includes the 1982 hymnal, Lift Every Voice and Sing, Wonder Love & Praise, Voices Found, El Hymnario as well as traditions in a relationship with the Episcopal Church.   We sing over 400 hymns over the 3-year lectionary cycle; capturing and helping illuminate the biblical readings for the day.     As the liturgical season’s change, the musical settings change, bringing familiar repetition; yet deeper understanding of the timeless period we live.  This diversity is captured in a fully printed bulletin that contains everything needed for worship.

Healing Prayer Team

Many people have physical or emotional challenges that they would like to have prayed for specifically.  A Healing Prayer Team member will be standing in the Chapel who will pray with you and anoint you with blessed oil if you like.

This practice has ancient roots and is based on James 5:13-16 says, “13 Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. 14 Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.”

Lay Eucharistic Ministers

Ushers

This is an important group of people who not only help the service run smoothly but also serve as greeters to welcome people to our Church.  Ushers help people find a seat, pass out bulletins, take the offering and coordinate bringing the oblations of bread and wine to the alter.  Ushers also help guide people to the communion rail.

If you would like to know more about this ministry, please contact Norm Chappelle at phone and email.

Lectors

Lectors are people who love the Word of God and who like to read in front of people on occasion.  Lectors read the Old Testament passage, sometimes the Psalm and the Epistle.  Sometimes the rector will substitute a poem or other type of reading that accentuates the biblical theme for the message.

Lectors read from the podium or what is called the “labo” and speak into a microphone to ensure that all can hear them.  We like to have a variety of people read from all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities.

If you would like to be a lector please call or email Norm Chappell.
