Summer 2021 will be an exciting one for middle school students and student ministers as we return to Waco once again to work with our friends at Mission Waco. Students will help the impoverished of this community in many ways. Activities for the week may include cleaning, mowing, painting, sanding and construction, and leading camp activities such as games, crafts and Bible lessons in low-income neighborhoods. This will be a great time of fellowship, fun and helping fellow Texans in need.

Acolytes

The order of acolytes is one of the most ancient ministries in the church. The word “acolyte” means “follower” or “one who helps.” In addition to carrying flags, banners, torches and crosses during the service, acolytes also assist the Clergy of St. Martin’s with preparing the altar for Holy Communion.  These are important and vital roles that are central to our worship at St. Martin’s, and help to develop a sense of reverence and understanding for the tradition of the Episcopal worship service.

The St. Martin’s Acolyte Ministry requires a one-year commitment. We try our best to schedule you to serve at the service time of your choice. Depending on the number of acolytes, you will serve one to two times per month.

Students in 6th–12th grade are invited to serve in The Church for Sunday worship services at 8 a.m., 9 a.m., 11:15 a.m. or 6 p.m.

If you would like to serve as an acolyte, click the button below to sign up. (must be filled out on a computer)
