Acolytes & Chalice Bearers

Motty Durham

Acolytes are youth serving at the altar during weekly Sunday service. This is a very good ministry for our youth. They learn about Holy Communion and the joy of serving the Lord at His Table.

Chalice Bearers are adults who carry the chalice containing the wine during the Service of Communion.


Altar Guild

Director: Jennifer Kircher
Phone: 928-726-7968

The Altar Guild is men and women who set up the altar each Sunday and care for the various vestments used on the altar and by the clergy. We are seeking others who are willing to help set The Lord’s Table so please keep an open mind and consider joining us in the service to The Lord and our community.


Children’s Ministry

Director: Hillary Thomas

Children’s Ministry (Sunday School)

Guiding, teaching, and leading our youngest congregants in Christian love through Sunday school and special events. As we reach more families with children, we need more volunteers to help.

Sunday School is held (11:15 am) during part of the Sunday Service. The children receive a blessing and go to Sunday School. They return at The Peace to collect the Noisy Offering and stay for Holy Communion.


Noisy Offering

Empty Paint Cans + Children + Coins = Noisy Offering

CTR gives the Noisy Offering to a different Yuma charity or to a church ministry each week. This is our community outreach in a small but powerful way. Some of our charities are: Saddles of Joy* Hospice* Altar Guild*


Lay Eucharistic Ministry

Phone: 928-343-9551

Lay Eucharistic Ministry – LEM

Lay Eucharistic Ministers are trained to bring the elements (bread and wine) to those in the hospital or who are ill at home. Please call the church office if you want Holy Communion brought to your home or the hospital.



Prayers and Squares

Director: Ann Traverso

We meet at the church library weekly on Tuesday mornings at 8:30 am. Prayers & Squares is an outreach ministry combining the gift of prayer with a hand-tied quilt. Unlike many other groups that make quilts for charitable causes, the purpose of Prayers & Squares is not to create and distribute quilts but to promote prayer through the use of quilts. Our motto is: “It’s not about the quilt; it’s all about the prayers.” Anyone who wants to join us can come to the office any Friday morning. We will be happy to explain more about what we do. You do not have to be a “Quilter.”

We have now sent out more than 1,000 quilts!!
