Church Service Ministry

THE ALTAR GUILD MINISTRY - The altar guild ministry is a group of members that help prepare the various elements of Holy Communion or Baptism. The various responsibilities should be carried out prayerfully and with reverence. Some of the responsibilities include:

  • filling the candles
  • dusting the altar and shelves
  • setting up and tearing down from communion and baptism
  • changing the paraments
  • checking the pews
  • preparing the altar flowers for shut-ins.
The members work in groups of three to four persons and are assigned a month about three times a year. Most preparations for baptism and communion take approximately one hour and occur on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
