Lay Ministers


  • Acolytes


    Acolytes assist the priests in leading people to worship our Lord.  The word “acolyte” comes from the Greek word “akolouthos” which means assistant or attendant.  Like any other ministry in the Church, being an acolyte is a lifetime ministry and at St. Paul’s, it is a special way to involve our youth ages eight years and up.  Please contact Tony Blakey (229) 349-1454 or TBlakey@kelleylovett.com.

  • Lectors


    They serve the Body of Christ by making the scriptures and prayers of the people heard in our community.   Eucharistic Ministers assist with the preparation of the altar during communion and assist the priests with the distribution of the Eucharistic elements. 

  • Ushers

    Ushers are present at most of our services. Ushers are divided into five teams and serve an average of once a month. They greet worshipers, hand out bulletins, pass the alms plates, and present the offering just before Communion.

  • Lay Eucharistic Ministers

    They are specially trained to take communion to shut-ins.  On a rotating basis, these ministers visit with parishioners who are unable to come to a regular service thus helping them maintain the vital link to St. Paul’s.

  • Greeters

    Do just that, before and after each service. These friendly folks give a special welcome to guests and drop off a small gift from St. Paul’s soon after the initial visit.  Please contact Molly Swan (229) 344-2268.
