Would you like to help prepare the altar for services? The Altar Guild is the ministry of preparing and maintaining everything that relates to the altar, including the vestments and linens and preparing and caring for the vessels used during the Eucharist. This special ministry is usually thought of as a “behind the scenes” ministry in that most tasks are performed when only the team members are in the church.
The Altar Guild is divided into teams, with each team serving one week a month throughout the year. They prepare and clean up after each Eucharist during the week. Each team has a team captain who coordinates the team’s work in setting the altar and trains new Altar Guild members. New members then serve with experienced members of their team. Directions for Altar Guild duties are posted in the sacristy and distributed to team members.
For more information or to become a volunteer, please contact the head of the Altar Guild, Golda Brown or the church office at 254-753-4501.
