Worship Ministries

The Altar Guild prepares, maintains and sets up the furnishings of the altar and sanctuary for Sunday services and other special services. They are responsible for purchasing vestments and linens, managing flower funds and memorials, replenishing the supply of bread, wine and candles, advising about memorial gifts for use in the sanctuary and participating in special rites of Christmas, Easter and other occasions. The Guild is divided into five teams, each of which serves two weeks every two months.

Eucharistic Ministers serve under the direction of the clergy and are authorized to administer the Consecrated Elements at a Celebration of Holy Eucharist. After training by the Clergy of the Parish, a confirmed communicant will be licensed by the Bishop at the request of the Rector.

Greeters stand in the hall to greet people as they go into services. They welcome newcomers and visitors, encouraging them to sign the Guest Book and join parishioners at coffee hour. Greeters work on rotating six-week terms.

Ushers are men and women who provide service bulletins to those entering the church. They receive the offering, assist the congregation to the altar rail for Eucharist, and close the church following services.
