The Acolyte ministry relies on weekly youth volunteerism. Acolytes assist the Pastor during services by lighting candles and helping with communion and the collection of funds. Usually, only one acolyte is required per service, although several may be asked to serve on a special service day. As a requirement for Affirmation, youth are asked to either serve as acolytes, Usher, or reader or a combination of these ministries.

Acolyte training take place in September and often current acolytes are asked to help train new ones.

It is an acolyte's responsibility to find an appropriate replacement volunteer if they cannot serve. The church office will assist in finding a replacement if help is needed.
