The flower chart is posted on the bulletin board in the gathering area. Please feel free to sign up for your desired dates. If you want to sign up for two vases on a particular Thursday/Sunday, sign on both lines. If both lines are filled, still feel free to sign up for that date. One vase of flowers is $20.
Please fill out the envelope marked “Altar Flowers” attached to the chart and place in the offering plate at least two weeks before the date you wish to have the flowers on the altar. Make sure you designate what you would like to have put in the bulletin and mark if you wish to take the flowers home or have them donated to shut-in.
Thank you for helping us beautify the Lord’s House.
The Guild’s main purpose is to care for the Altar, the sacramental vessels and linens. Communionware is placed on the altar when there is Holy Communion. The Guild also prepares the items and fills the font for Holy Baptism. Members of the Guild, along with any interested congregational members, decorate the church for holidays, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
New banners and paraments are made or purchased by the Guild when needed. The Altar Guild also changes the banners and paraments to correspond with the proper color of the season.
The Altar Guild is looking for ladies of the congregation to give of themselves to help with setting up the Sacraments. Contact Karen Albrecht if you are willing to help.
