Acolyte and Crucifer Training
Sunday, August 13, 2017
Traditional Worship uses elements from the ancient church such as the Apostles creed, the Lord’s Prayer, readings from the Old and New Testaments, Acolytes, and Crucifers. Traditional Worship is not a sentimental love for the past, but an acknowledgment that we are part of something eternal. Acolytes have been used in worship for more than 1700 years! When the acolyte brings the light into the sanctuary and lights the candles, people are reminded that God is with us and the words of Jesus: “I am the light of the world.” The crucifer brings the cross into the sanctuary. The cross reminds everyone what Jesus has done for each of us and celebrates the presence of Jesus with us in worship.
