A Place to Belong...

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.
We have prepared a place for you!

A Place To Belong...Main Street is one of the most historic churches in Suffolk (founded in 1801), we are also a church that is vibrant, alive and new. Our congregation comes from all walks of life, from young to old, newcomers to life-long members.                            

Join us each Sunday as we celebrate God and glorify His name in praise!

Opportunities in Worship Ministries

Ushers: Ushers greet and provide bulletins to worshipers as they arrive each Sunday and assist them in finding a seat. They assist worshipers with hearing devices, large-print hymnals, and related needs which make the worship experience meaningful. Ushers also collect the offering during the worship services.

Greeters: Greeters are stationed at the main entrance to the Atrium and Narthex. They extend a warm welcome and provide directions as necessary.

Worship Planning Team: The Worship Planning Team coordinates the work of all of the ministries listed in this section and works with the pastor to plan worship.

Acolytes: At the 11:00 am service acolytes bring in the cross and light the altar candles at the beginning of worship an extinguish them at the close of worship. One of our young acolytes in training carries a Bible to the altar.

Altar Guild: Members of the Altar Guild see that the sanctuary is ready for worship each Sunday.

Worship Leaders: Those in this ministry may be asked to lead worship by making announcements, reading scripture and leading a prayer during worship. Lay Readers are needed for the 8:30 and 11:00 am services.

Decorating Committee: This group decorates the sanctuary for special occasions of the church year, including Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas, Palm Sunday and Easter.

Photographers: Photographers are needed to take pictures of new members when they join the church as well as other events in the life of the church.

Technology Team: Audio and video operators are needed each week to run the sound board and other equipment that may be needed during the 8:30 and 11:00 am services.
