Lay Readers and Chalice Bearers


IMG_4254r2Lay Readers and Chalice Bearers

Here at St. James-in-the-Hills we offer a fine ministry to committed persons who desire a close and rewarding experience of serving on the altar as a licensed Lay Reader and Chalice Bearer.  These service minded persons will serve once a month at our early morning English service at 8:00 A.M. or the 9:30 A.M. service.  A Spanish service at 11:30 A.M. is also available.  We encourage those not wanting to altogether commit to  full service in the altar ministry to consider being trained as a Lector.  The Lector comes from within the congregation and reads the prescribed Lessons and Psalm for that Sunday.  The Lector does not offer the Chalice and no license is required.

Those who are reborn into the fellowship of Christ’s Body are invited to come and share their faith with us on the altar of St. James.  We welcome you and look forward to seeing you among us.
