If you would like to become involved at TUMC, we have space for Greeters, Ushers, Liturgists, flower coordinators, and more! If you would like to help out in worship, contact the church office at (805) 528-1649 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
Are you looking for a way of participating in church worship that’s fun, easy and requires NO meetings? Then ushering is the job for you! This is a great way to meet people if you are new to the church family. Very little training required. You’ll be asked to usher about once every 3 months. Sign up in the Fellowship Hall, or call or email the Church office.
Among the first persons you will meet on arriving for Sunday services at Trinity is one on our friendly greeters. They will welcome members and visitors alike with a smile and handshake, and will offer information and assistance when needed. They are an important part of Trinity's mission as an open and welcoming congregation. We try to schedule greeters a month or two in advance and ask that volunteers put their names on the sign-up sheet posted in the Fellowship Hall. If a volunteer cannot be present as scheduled, he or she may arrange for a substitute. If you would like to participate in this great ministry, contact the office at (805) 528-1649.
Liturgists serve by helping to lead weekly worship services. The liturgist welcomes the congregation, makes announcements, lights the candle of peace, and leads in the Call to Worship. Also, after the offertory and doxology the liturgist offers the Prayer of Thanksgiving and Lord's Prayer.
Scripture Readers offer the prayer before the word then read the weekly scripture lesson. You should be a good story teller that enjoys telling an interesting and important story!
Flowers on the altar are donated each week by members of the church. Each week a special message is written in the Call to Worship for those who donate the flowers, either to celebrate a special event, in memory of a loved one, or just to share in the nature of giving for the ministry. When one signs up as a Flower Provider they can have the arrangements made or purchase the flowers and arrange them themselves. Sign up sheets are found in the Fellowship Hall each month, and you may sign up as many times as you wish.
