Acolyte is a fancy church word for candle lighter (a carrier of the light). As a regular part of our Sunday worship, we are inviting the young ones among us (who are able) to bring in the light at the beginning of worship and to bring it out at the end. And it’s okay if a young one wants to do it with a parent or grandparent or other beloved adult or youth.
This note is to inform parents that it’s happening and ask for all those who might be interested to let Pastor JT know of their interest through an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A list of interested children will be gathered and scheduled and instructed on being an acolyte.
