Altar Guild

Seeking Altar Guild Members

The Altar Guild at Christ Church is looking for volunteers.  We are a ministry of volunteers who serve under the direction of the clergy.  Our purpose is to prepare the Eucharist and reverently care for the Altar and Sanctuary.  We also assist with Baptisms, weddings, and funerals when needed.

Have you ever wondered how Sunday services are set up or what the names of those silver pieces are on the credence table? You can find out that information by joining the Altar Guild.

The purpose of the Altar Guild is to reverently care for the Altar and Sanctuary and to prepare the Eucharist. We work under the direction of the Christ Church clergy and both set-up before and clean-up after the 8 am, 10 am and 5 pm services. We are also responsible for the care and cleaning of all vessels, vestments, and linens which are used for the Eucharist.

Our ministry is currently made up of 20 members who are divided into four teams. Each team has a Team Leader and works a few hours about once a month, generally Saturday morning, Sunday after one of the services, and Monday morning, if available.

When necessary, we also assist with weddings, baptisms, and memorial services. We are a dedicated group who enjoy fellowship with each other and working in a quiet, reverent environment.
