Ways to Serve

Church Service Ministries

Good Shepherd of the Hills counts on our volunteers to keep our services running smoothly for everyone. We have a place for everyone’s talents, and would be grateful to have your help. Below are just a few ways you can serve in the church. Contact us for questions or to get started!

Altar Servers during services
Acolytes/Altar Servers

Serve at the altar on Sundays and other occasions of worship. Their primary role is to assist the clergy during worship and help in the distribution of the Eucharistic Elements.

Greeters serve as the “face of Good Shepherd” welcoming both newcomers and old friends.
