The Labyrinth Ministry makes available the Labyrinth as a contemplative prayer walk in a meditative setting. The ministers prepare the environment and are present to answer questions and/or guide persons interested. Ministers invite, welcome, give overviews of ways to walk the Labyrinth and answer any questions.
This is one of the few ministries where people of various faith traditions come to our church to pray. It is an opportunity to pray together as well as an opportunity for learning and discovery. The labyrinth ministers have an opportunity to share their love of the labyrinth with others.
Current needs include:
- Labyrinth Walkers – We are looking for people to walk and to pray in our labyrinth.
- Committee Members – people who are interested in welcoming, explaining and answering questions for others who come in to use the labyrinth. (On-the-job training is provided)
- Publicity Chairperson – We are looking for new ways to publicize our ministry to others and help advertise the ministry to interested parties.
- Music Technologist – We are looking for someone to create a new mix of music for
various seasons and to convert our current CD’s to a newer technology. The music technologist would also train the other members of the committee on the use of the technology.
Date: The committee meets once a year to discuss ways to expand the ministry. The Labyrinth is currently staffed the first Thursday evening from October to April; Thursday evenings during Lent; perhaps one additional evening during Advent and at other times by request.
Time: 1.5 hours – 2 hours for welcoming labyrinth walkers and answering questions, and 30 minutes for set up and clean up. Committee members are given on the job training and are assigned times to work based on their schedule. There is time for members to walk the labyrinth during their assigned time.
