“For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name.” Hebrews 6:10
The Altar Server ministry is an important way for the youth of our parish to experience the joy and gratification that come from serving God:
Help with the divine services and many other important church functions
Cutting the blessed bread (Antidoron), lighting charcoal, handling incense, carrying candles, fans, & other processional items plus many other tasks
Begin serving at age 7 or 8, though all children are wonderfully different and may be ready to serve at an earlier or later age
Are not part of a formal rotation and any youth “called” to serve at the altar is welcome.
