Those who wish to serve in worship as an acolyte this year are invited to an overnight training event on Saturday, September 8, beginning at 5 pm. This event will include meals at local restaurants, acolyte instruction, a tour of the bell tower, fun and games, candlelight communion, and a sleepover at the church! Acolyting is open to adults, youth, and children in 4th grade or older. All current acolytes are requested to attend! Adults who would like to serve as acolytes this year are welcome to attend instruction sessions only – no need to spend the night. Registration is open at www.highlandsumc.net/acolyte-training.
