At COTS Youth we aim to be real in our faith, have fun, & meet each person where they are.
Every youth can belong.

Do you like to help people?

Does the idea of someone engaging with God sound like a good thing to you? If so, you should consider joining the Acolyte Team for the people of our 11am Worship Service!

Get Acolyte Trained!

Thursday, October 27, 6:30-7:30pm in the Sanctuary

Acolytes help make worship services great. They carry in the Big Bible and cross, carry in and light the altar candles, assist with collecting the offering, and help serve Communion. Acolytes serve on Communion Sundays (first Sundays of the month)
