Serving as Lector is an important part of the ministry at Emmanuel. The Lector is responsible for delivering the word of God during our services. A lector is primarily responsible for reading an Old Testament Lesson, leading the Psalm, and reading the new Testament lesson.
Qualifications for becoming a lector begin with a desire to read and lead readings at the front of the church in an engaging manner and in a voice and tone that help all to hear God’s word. It is a fantastic way to connect yourself with God’s word and allow others to truly surround themselves with his word.
If you are interested in serving, please contact Mike Robinson at 434-242-2033 and he will be delighted to get you involved.
The lectionary readings are provided several days ahead to prepare for your reading.
