Children as worship volunteers
Every child is a part of the worshipping family of St. Bartholomew, from birth onward. Some children choose to take that participation a step further and serve at the altar during worship. Children carry the cross and the torches in the procession to the altar at the start of the service. They are part of the preparation for communion. Others with especially good reading skills can be called upon to read lessons from the Bible and lead prayers as well. In addition to offering an important service to the St. Bartholomew’s family, stepping up to serve can be a meaningful milestone in a young person’s spiritual journey.
