The Altar guild prepares the church for Sunday services, weddings, funerals, and baptisms, in accordance with the liturgical calendar. We change the hangings and altar cloths from white to green, to purple, red, and blue depending on the season of the church.
The guild is also responsible for the altar flowers and /or wine and hosts for the Eucharist at each service. Please consider “sponsoring” flowers and/or wine one Sunday during the year -- sign up lists are on the bulletin board. You may sign up for one ($15) vase of flowers or two ($30) plus $3.00 for delivery, or even share a Sunday with someone else. Please do remember to take a donation envelope from the pocket by the list and turn it in to the treasurer’s office or put it in the collection plate on Sunday.
The second Sunday of each month we have a healing ceremony during the 10 am service where everyone is invited to be anointed with holy oil and to have the laying on of hands. Each and every time it truly gives me hope, peace and grace, as Holy Eucharist does.
There are 9 active members in Altar Guild. I want to welcome Tiffany Hubbard as our newest member to the Altar Guild. Tiffany & Paul were married on November 11, 2011 at Zion and we welcome them both.
As of this date, I will not continue being in charge of Altar Guild. I will be on the schedule to serve. I am going to take time off so that Stan and I might do a bit of travel in the future.
We would welcome anyone who would like to be involved with this ministry.
