First Light Acolyte

    The First Light Acolyte Ministry is open to all youth who are members of Athens First United Methodist Church. Acolytes lead the processional into worship each Sunday with the Cross and the Flame. They light candles, carry banners, assist ministers with baptisms and help with communion. Acolytes serve approximately once every five or six weeks. We will offer two training opportunities for interested youth this fall. The first session is Sunday, September 24, 12-12:30 p.m. and the second session is on Sunday, October 1, 5:30-6:00 p.m. Each session is only thirty minutes in the Sanctuary. Choose either date and join Janis to learn about this opportunity to serve God and our church, and to be a part of our worship team. Thank you for considering this opportunity to serve!
