Working behind the scenes, the Altar Guild members spend much time and devotion preparing the church for worship. A small group of eight women work each week to prepare communion. This involves many things too numerous to detail here. Just a few of the tasks are preparing elements for Communion, displaying seasonal liturgical colors, providing flowers, upkeep of the baptismal font and keeping linens in good order. There is a person who bakes the Communion Bread and special provisions are made for folks who need gluten free wafers.
Besides weekly duties, the Guild does preparation for Advent, the Greening of the church for Christmas, special decorations for Easter and other special services.
The Altar Guild always welcomes new members – both women and men! Training is available, too.
