  Altar Guild


The Altar Guild has the responsibility and privilege of preparing the Holy Eucharist for all worship services as well as for special services, baptisms, weddings, and funerals. Altar Guild members also care for and maintain linens and vestments, polish silver and brass, and order supplies.  Members serve at least one service per month and also help with seasonal preparations for special services at Christmas, Easter, and during Lent. Serving on the Altar Guild is not difficult, however it is a commitment and an investment of time. All members, both men and women, are invited to join the Altar Guild and serve in this rewarding ministry.
