LITURGIST NOTES FROM PASTOR SUE
The following steps are designed to help those participating in worship come prepared for the worship of God. Punctuality is important.
JUST BEFORE THE SERVICE
All those participating in worship will meet at the back of the sanctuary, in the room on the right (closest to the organ), before the service for 45 seconds of prayer, to prepare themselves for worship. This includes the pastor, liturgist, organist/pianist and any guests participating in worship.
The liturgist can use this opportunity to ask Pastor Sue any questions about the service, the readings, word pronunciations, etc., if s/he hasn’t had an opportunity previously.
The meeting times will be as follows: 8:05 for the 8:15 service; 9:20 for the 9:30 service; 10:50 for the 11:00 service.
After the prayer, the pastor and liturgist will take their seats at the altar and the organist will begin playing preludes.
If there is no acolyte, the liturgist will light the candles before taking his/her seat.
Note: there is a lighting device (and candle snuffer) at the altar. Please ask the sexton if find any difficulty.
DURING THE SERVICE
Just before the sermon, the liturgist will come down and sit in the front pew, in order to hear the sermon better. (Note: This may not be possible when front pews are full, such as during special services - baptisms, Christmas, Easter, etc.)
After the sermon, the liturgist will return to his/her seat at the altar.
CONCLUDING THE SERVICE
In services where there is no acolyte, the liturgist will extinguish the candles during the singing of the last hymn.
Before the benediction, the liturgist will step down from the altar and stand between the organ and first pew to wait for the Pastor.
It is important that the liturgist leave all papers and personal items at the altar and retrieve them after the service, in order to not make a disturbance by gathering up these things to take with them down the aisle.
After the benediction, the Pastor will step down and join the liturgist. The two of them will stand together quietly facing the congregation, pause, and then walk down the aisle to the narthex (while the organist is playing).
Once at the narthex, Pastor Sue and the liturgist will stand at the side of the doorway , side by side to greet the congregation leaving.
After all have been greeted, the liturgist will return to the altar to retrieve papers and belongings.
The Sacraments are blessed by an Elder of the church. After the blessing, church members are welcome to touch the Host in order to distribute it to the congregation.
The Pastor will give Communion to the liturgist, then the liturgist will give Communion to the Pastor.
Pastor Sue will serve the bread to the congregation.
Liturgist will serve the juice. Give people time to reflect upon the Sacrament before beginning to serve them the juice. Do not rush.
For each congregant, take a cup out of the holder and hand it to him/her. This will help those who have shaky hands or difficulty grasping.
Do not worry about people concerned about “germs.” Do not feel it is necessary to use a hand sanitizer prior to serving the Host.
Say to each person, “The blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, given for you.” Do not rush.
(Who collects the cups?) Pastor Sue
