Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMs)

Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMs) serve as a vital part of the worship team. During worship LEMs lead the readings of the Scripture appointed in our Lectionary. They also lead the congregation in the Prayers of the People and serve as chalice bearers during communion. LEMs are licensed by our Bishop based on a criteria developed by the Episcopal Church.
