Acolytes at Athens First United Methodist Church are a vital part of worship services each week. Acolytes bring in the light, light candles, carry banners, assist ministers in baptisms, and serve as greeters.
Introduction to this ministry is part of the Confirmation class experience and will take place during the month of September. Training sessions will be set up for early 2020. All confirmands will be notified of the training dates by late 2019.
Below are the current Acolyte Fall 2019 schedules for each group:
