The ministry of the Chancel Guild is to care for and beautify the church in preparation for worship. This ministry team takes care of the linens, vestments, sacred vessels and furnishings. The guild members prepare the sanctuary for all services, including Baptisms, Weddings, and Funerals as well as, decorating the church for special festivals such as Easter, Christmas, and Harvest Thanksgiving. The Altar Guild also arranges flowers given by people in the congregation in memory of a loved one who has died, or as a thanksgiving for the blessings in their lives. If you are interested in becoming a part of this ministry, and would like to become a member of the Altar Guild, please contact Arlene Butson.
