Last Sunday was his first opportunity to acolyte. He was in charge of lighting the candles and he did a marvelous job.
For those of you unfamiliar with acolyting, I believe that acolytes are used in many denominations. In the Methodist church, acolytes help throughout the service by lighting candles, carrying the cross and banner down to the alter, assisting with communion, and handling the offering plates.
We never had Drew serve as an acolyte, so I’m happy to have Alex helping to serve the church. I know he learned so much more about our church services and will learn during his time as an acolyte.
