Congregational Support

Worship Assistants

Musicians

Volunteer musicians, including vocalists and instrumentalists are an essential part of the worship experience. There are no auditions for volunteer musicians -- all are welcome to join CTK's musical ensembles. See the music page for more information.

Readers and Assisting Ministers

Both Readers and Assisting Ministers read the scripture lessons during the worship services and occasionally lead the responsive reading of the Psalm between the two lessons. Assisting Ministers will also assist the pastor with reading the prayers and other parts of the liturgy. Both roles assist the pastor in the distribution of communion during church services.

Ushers

Ushers distribute bulletins and other special materials and guide people in finding a seat before the service begins. During the service, ushers count the attendance, conduct the collection of the offering, and assist members and visitors during communion.

Altar Guild

Altar Guild members, operating behind the scenes, are an important part of Christ The King. Working in pairs for an entire month, guild members are responsible for preparing the altar before services and changing the altar paraments according to the church season. To be sure, holiday times are the busiest, but members find great joy in preparing the sanctuary for festival worship.

Open to all youth that are in 5th grade or higher, the Order of St. John assists with Sunday morning liturgy as altar servers, crucifiers, and acolytes. The Order of St. John also meets for social and service opportunities.
