The Altar Guild’s ministry is to prepare a place for worship. At the present time we have 16 members making up 6 teams who work together to ensure that the church is always prepared for church services, baptisms, weddings and funerals. Each team covers 2 months of the year.
Duties include preparing the communion vessels for the Eucharist, keeping all the brass and silver polished, taking care of all the linens used on the altars and during services and arranges for flowers. Next time you are at church, make note of the colors of the hangings on the altar, pulpit and lectern. These change depending on the church calendar and also for special services.
As the other church ministries, we can use new members, male or female. You would have a real feeling of satisfaction seeing the results of your work during any church service.
