Lay ministry is a primary necessity in the life of Amazing Grace Anglican Church. 

The apostle Paul tells us that it is the job of those in leadership to "equip the saints" for works of service."And it is he who has given some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip God's people for work in his services, for the building up of the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity inherent in our faith and in our knowledge of the Son of God~ to mature manhood, measured by nothing less but the full stature of Christ." (Ephesians 4:11-13)

On this page you will see just some of the opportunities for service in our church. Look them over, and prayerfully consider your part in the mission and ministry of Amazing Grace Anglican Church.

As an Acolyte, you are a “companion” or “one who helps” during a worship service. Acolytes are an important part of any worship service. They help by lighting the candles, accepting the offering and placing it on the alter, assisting during the distribution of the communion, extinguishing the candles and carry the cross as they lead the priest in and out of the service. If you are interested in becoming an Acolyte, please see Craig McDaniel
