Is your child interested in serving as an acolyte? Join us for an informational meeting and training session for children (2nd grade and older) interested in serving as an acolyte or wishing to continue volunteering. Acolytes participate in the 11 am Traditions Service and this is an easy way to get your child involved in serving. We will also provide a pizza lunch for all those that attend. Please RSVP your attendance to Donnette Plumlee.
