Thank you for volunteering your time to participate in worship at St. Michael’s!
As in the past, you will receive reminder emails the week of your scheduled date, but please mark these dates on your calendar now.
If you find your schedule changes and you are not able to serve on a day you are scheduled, you may use this website to ask to swap with another scheduled lector.
Your readings will be emailed to you from the church office the week of your scheduled date (generally Wednesday or Thursday) and printed copies will be available in the ushers’ box inside the worship binders for you to pick up on Sunday. If you do not receive a copy, please reach out to the office or pastors to make sure you are able to read through the texts for Sunday.
? Choose a pew that has easy accessibility to the microphone directly across from the pulpit (lectern).
? The readings are available in the ushers’ box on (either in the sanctuary or church office). Please pick up the worship binder before worship and use it to read the scripture passages.
? You may test the microphone prior to worship and adjust the height of the microphone. The green light on the microphone indicates that the microphone is on. There is a gray button on the microphone to turn it on (or off) if needed.
? After the Prayer of the Day or Children’s Sermon, come forward to the microphone (unless instructed otherwise by pastors.)
? Make sure the microphone is on by checking for the green light. If it is not on, press the small gray button to turn the microphone on.
? Read the passages with script out of the worship binder. Script may include directions to the congregation such as: “We will now read the Psalm responsively” or “Please rise in body or spirit for the Gospel Acclamation”
? Return to your seat after you have concluded the assigned readings.
? Return the worship binders to the ushers’ box at the end of the worship service.
Again, your willingness to volunteer your time is very much appreciated!
