Worship Volunteers

Altar Guild

The members of St. John’s Altar Guild work to ensure that all things necessary for the proper conduct of worship are in place.  Their duties include the care of the altar linens and other liturgical items such as the Eucharistic vessels, elements, vestments, candles, and small furnishings for the altar.  Communion preparation is performed by members on a rotating basis.  Contact: Jocelyn Starner at (610) 759-3205.

Altar Flowers

Flowers adorning the altar can be sponsored in honor or in memory of a loved one.  Two sets of flowers are permitted each week.  If you would like to sponsor the Altar Flowers in honor or in memory of a loved one, please complete the required information for your desired weekend in the Altar Flowers Notebook located in the rear of the nave. Two dedications are available for most weekends. For questions or concerns, please contact Steven Millheim at (610) 365-2343 or by email to (Enable Javascript to see the email address).

Bulletin Sponsors

St. John’s prints 450 worship bulletins for each weekend (for three worship services), plus additional copies for special worship services and events. Bulletin sponsors are needed to help offset the cost of printing the bulletins. Please consider sponsoring the weekly bulletins in honor or in memory of a loved one or special occasion. The weekly bulletin sponsorship costs $50, but can be split with two dedications for $25 each. To sponsor the bulletins, please sign-up for your desired date in the notebook located in the rear of the nave. For questions or concerns, please contact the Church Office at (610) 759-3090 ext. 100 or (Enable Javascript to see the email address).

Media Ministry Donations

As with the weekly bulletins and altar flowers, the Media system incurs weekly costs to produce and distribute CDs of each 8:00 a.m. Sunday service for the congregation’s shut-ins.  Sponsoring a recording of the worship service is a wonderful way to remember or honor a family member or friend, or an event such as a baptism or an anniversary, while providing a valuable service to those members in our church who are homebound or unable to attend a church service. When you sponsor a CD, the dedication is published in that Sunday’s bulletin. Suggested sponsorship is $25. To sponsor the CD Ministry, please sign up for your desired date in the notebook found in the rear of the nave. For more information, contact Lois Davis at (610) 504-1635.

Seasonal Decorations

This sub-committee of the Worship & Music Committee arranges for seasonal decorations such as the Lenten and Easter crosses, the Harvest Home displays, Advent wreath and trees, and dedicated floral arrangements such as the Easter lilies, Memorial Day geraniums, and the poinsettias at Christmas.

Worship Assistants

Includes: Greeters, Ushers, Lectors, Acolytes, Nursery Assistants

Each week, members of the congregation assist during worship by offering a friendly welcome to other congregants, lighting the candles, reading the scripture lessons aloud during the service, collecting the offering, and taking care of our youngest members.
