Reader

  • The church office will send a PDF of the bulletin to the reader and the team leader. Readings for the date are available at www.creatorlutheran.org/worship. It is good to read over the readings ahead of time in case there are any difficult words (like the reading for Pentecost).

  • Prior to reading you may say: “A reading from the _____ Chapter of the book of _______.
