Worship Team

The appointed pastor is given the responsibility of Worship. The Book of Discipline on the responsibilities of a pastor, says the pastor is “to preach the Word of God, lead in worship, read and teach the Scriptures and engage the people in study and witness.”   Middletown United Methodist Church, as does many others, elects  a Worship Team to work with the pastor and the music leaders in planning for and preparing the worship services.  Their services include:

  • Sanctuary: dressing the altar, decorations for services
  • Services: planning special services throughout the Christian year
  • Music: planning special music within the services
  • Communion: coordinating set up of the elements as well as scheduling eucharistic ministry
  • Laity: Coordinating schedules for ushers, greeters, and worship leaders
  • Assisting the Pastor with anything that concerns the worship service and the worship activity of the congregation.
Our Worship Team and its many ministries offers a wide range of opportunities for service, from greeting worshipers, to sharing your musical gifts, to assisting with audio/visual equipment. Whether you prefer the contemporary or traditional worship style, we have a place for you to serve and glorify God.
