Volunteers are always needed and appreciated for the various ministries at American Lutheran Church. Here are areas that are currently looking for helping hands. Please contact the church office at (928) 445-4348 if you would like to volunteer or need more information.

Ushering plays an essential role in providing a welcome and safe environment for members and visitors attending Traditional and Contemporary worship services and for special events.Ushers answer questions, distribute bulletins, assist with seating, collect offerings, support distribution of the sacraments, and monitor areas in case special assistance is required. Ushers arrive early before the scheduled worship service or event and receive their assignment from a designated Head Usher. As an Usher Volunteer, you play a vital role in serving Christ and service to the church.

At ALC, an Acolyte is responsible for lighting the candles and assisting with the offering during Traditional worship services. Historically the position of Acolyte has been filled by youth in 4th through the 12th grades. Acolyting gives young people a chance to experience service to others, service to the church, and service to Christ.
