Epistle Readings

Guidelines for Reading in Church

  1. Relax and pray before reading.
  2. Make sure to read slowly and clearly.
  3. Look up a few times during the reading of the Epistle. The best time is after the end of each paragraph, but other times are also good.
  4. Slow down at a comma and pause briefly at a period.
  5. Make sure you inflect your voice if there is a question mark at the end of the sentence. ‘Isn’t that right?’ (Voice goes up slightly at the end.)
  6. When practicing at home stand 20 feet from the person who is listening to you because it is very important to project when you are reading in a Church.
  7. If you do not know what a word means look it up in a dictionary.
  8. If you are not sure how to pronounce a word, look at the pronunciation guide in a dictionary or ask someone.
  9. Do not worry about making a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes. Stay call and keep reading.
  10. Keep re-reading until you feel comfortable.


If you are interested in reading the epistle please contact the office through email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by calling (714) 985-1710.
