St. John's is active in the Sacramento community at large and strives to help those in need both locally and in the world. We partner with organizations that work to help those most vulnerable, and we also volunteer with various community groups.
The Altar Guild prepares communion and altar related materials for all services. This includes setting the Lord's table with the communion elements and appropriate linens and refilling the altar candles with oil before the early service and refreshed after the last service.
After the last service, communion elements are washed and put away. Two members are assigned to each service.
Greeters provide the first welcome to
St. John's on Sunday mornings. Greeters are stationed outside at the front and the back (parking lot) of the church to provide a welcome and offer directions to the elevator, etc., if requested. Greeters are welcome to come into
worship as soon as the bells ring.
Ushers, along with greeters, are the face of St. John's on Sunday mornings and can provide a host of information and resources. The chief responsibilities of Ushers are to provide a warm greeting to worshipers as they arrive and to provide them with a service bulletin. During the service, ushers will assist with communion by guiding rows to the communion
stations. They will provide a head count of attendance, and bring all offerings to the church office safe after each service.
