Since children are our most valuable asset, it is fitting to let them be a part of our worship service.  Children age 8 years through 12 years old serve as acolytes to light the candles on the communion table at the beginning of the Worship Service and extinguish the candles at the end the Worship Service.  This gives the congregation an opportunity to know the participants and watch them grow.  Our young people are also given the opportunity to read a scripture during the service, enriching their ability to speak in front of the congregation while serving God.
