The Altar Guild is a group of five volunteer teams who are responsible for preparing the altar for each worship service. Each team serves for one week each month.Altarguild2 Altarguild1

The Altar Guild is responsible for all sacred vessels, sanctuary appointments, altar linens, candles, bread (gluten free wafers are provided), wine, and all necessary support services such as the upkeep of the Sacristy, cleaning the brass and linens, and preparing the linens each week. Responsibilities include all weekly services, all holiday services, baptisms, weddings, funerals and any other special services. In addition to preparing for the worship services, the Altar Guild holds seasonal work days. The work days are designed for polishing the brass and silver, and decorating for Advent, Christmas, Lent and Holy Week.
