Ministry of the Baptized

All members of New Song are ministers in our congregation. Most members serve the church in a variety of roles, including as ushers, choir members, acolytes, lectors, and lay eucharistic ministers.

In addition, our staff includes a team of volunteer priests and deacons who work collaboratively to keep New Song a loving and lively community of faith.
