What We Do

Altar Guild

Making a difference through our service.....

The women of our Altar Guild, serve silently behind the scenes, setting up the altar for the next service. They also decorate the church for holidays and special occassions. What a privilege it is to serve in God’s sanctuary and at His altar!

National Altar Guild Prayer ~ Most gracious Father Who has called me Your child to serve in the preparation of Your Altar, so that it may be a suitable place for the offering of Your Body and Blood; Sanctify my life and consecrate my hands so that I may worthily handle those Sacred Gifts which are being offered to You. As I handle holy things, grant that my whole life may be illuminated and blessed by You, in whose honor I prepare them, and grant that the people who shall be blessed by their use, may find their lives drawn closer to Him Whose Body and Blood is our hope and our strength, Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
