1 Corinthians 12:4 “There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.”
St. Andrew’s has a strong tradition of a combined clergy and laity leadership- that is, leadership of all the congregation, whether or not they have been ordained. We are all called to use the gifts that God has given us, and being a Lay Assistant is one way to do that.
There are so many essential ministries carried out by laity (non-ordained congregation members) including, but by no means limited to Altar Guild; Lay Liturgical Assistant; Scripture Reader; Server; Audio / Visual Operator; and so many others.
