The Altar Guild is responsible for setting up and maintaining the altar for each worship service. This includes readying the vestments, paraments, linens, vessels, candles, and other furnishings. The guild ensures that the proper colors of the liturgical year are used, that the proper vessels are placed on the altar for worship, and that all necessary items are in place for baptisms, weddings, and funerals.
Altar flowers are an expression of the beauty and goodness of God. They symbolize spiritual joy and devotion. The congregation is given the opportunity to purchase flowers for the altar in honor of or in memory of a special person or event.
