Growing in God's Love as an Open, Caring Community

Altar Guild


The Altar Guild is always looking for new members! No experience is required, we will train you! Preparing the altar is a very rewarding job. We work “behind the scenes.” We prepare the altar each week for our worship; we care for the altar linens and are responsible for keeping the altar area clean and tidy. Coming in to set things up during the week when the church is empty and quiet is an amazing experience- you can really feel the Holy Spirit here!

We would like to say a big thank you to Peg Olson making our gluten-free communion bread each week!

 A donation for the weekly Altar Flowers can be a special way to remember loved ones or to celebrate a special occasion. Flower donation envelopes are available on the Usher’s Table.

Another wonderful way to honor a loved one is the Sanctuary Lamp.  The lamp will burn all week in memory of your loved one. The signup sheet is in the Common Room.  A small donation is appreciated when you sign up.

As with the Altar Flowers, the Sanctuary Lamp recipient’s name(s) will be put in the bulletin.
