For many centuries the church year calendar has shaped our worship: the readings, the sermons, the hymns and other music, the color of the paraments, and the appearance of the worship space. In its ministry of preparation, it is the duty of the altar guild to study the background and significance of the various seasons and festivals.
It is in the duty of the Altar Guild to care for this unique place dedicated to the honor and glory of God. Our goal is to see that the sanctuary is kept neat and beautiful to glorify God and enhance the worship for our congregation. This includes care for furnishings, linens and paraments, and preparing the worship space for the special seasons and church festivals, in addition to the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Communion and occasional services such as baptisms and confirmation.
The Altar guild meets during the year to discuss worship planning and concerns that come to the guild through the pastor, Worship, Music and Arts Committee, or the congregation.
The guild is presently preparing for the festival of The Holy Trinity, Sunday, May 27th, which occurs the Sunday after Pentecost. It celebrates the doctrine of the Trinity, one God in three persons, and the sanctuary paraments will be white. Except for festivals, Sundays after Pentecost use green paraments as a reminder that this is a season of spiritual growth.
We hope you will consider joining us for services, for All are Welcome here!
Peace and Grace are yours through the Risen Lord...
Come to Worship!
