Altar Guild: The primary support to the clergy in the preparation of the altar and the chancel for worship is the Altar Guild.  It is the responsibility of the Altar Guild to set up the instruments used in Eucharistic worship each time the community gathers for prayer. Members of the guild organize and place out the chalices and patens, the cruets and ciboria, prior to each hour of worship. They also arrange other facets of altar service, including the books, vases, frontals, candles, and coverings. They clean up and store the same after each service in the Sacristy.  Members of the Altar Guild are trained for their roles in an apprenticeship by the more experienced leaders of the group.  Four teams rotate responsibilities for preparing the Altar and sanctuary for worship. If this ministry of service to the clergy and congregation interests you, please contact Donna Young.

Flower Ministry:   The Flower Ministry of the parish assists the Altar Guild in its ministry by preparing the prominent display of floral arrangements each weekend and on holidays. Gifted individuals are always sought for this effort.  Interest in serving can be followed up by contacting Carol Luther.
