Altar Guild Ministry

The Altar Guild is entrusted with the primary responsibility of preparing the altar for the sacrament of Holy Communion for regular Sunday worship, the preparation of the altar for all worship services and such services as holy day worship, weddings and funerals. The Altar Guild serves in concert with the pastor and the music director.

Other concerns include: the care of the Baptismal Font, which includes preparing it for the sacrament of Baptism; changing the paraments in accordance with the liturgical calendar or as required for a special worship service; dry cleaning the paraments and pastor’s liturgical garments, and regular washing of the sacramental linens; and the purchasing candles, wine, grape juice, wafers and cups.

Gluten and dairy free rice wafers are available for individuals who suffer allergic reactions to wheat or dairy.
