The Altar Guild is made up of men, women and couples who serve the Lord and the church by caring for the altar and the ceremonial aspects of church services. They keep the Chancel area in good order, prepare for Holy Communion, change banners and paraments, and clean Communion vessels, linen and acolyte robes. Members serve on a regular schedule or may serve as substitutes.

Let me serve thee in all humility.
Let me serve thee in all reverence.
Let me serve thee in all obedience.
