An Invitation to Join the Altar Guild

Have you considered joining the Altar Guild at St. Luke’s? We invite the women and men…yes, men!...of our church family to consider engaging in this important task. What a meaningful way for couples to serve, together.

The St. Luke’s Altar Guild offers to the glory of God its gift in caring for the sanctuary by maintaining the altar linens, candles, communion vessels, and preparing the altar for the worship of God. This gift enhances the worship experience for everyone at St. Luke’s. The Altar Guild is responsible for setting up and clearing the altar for each worship service, as well as generally keeping the sanctuary and the children’s chapel clean and tidy. The Altar Guild also assists at weddings and funerals.

As a member of the Altar Guild, you will grow spiritually. Members of the Altar Guild find this work to be a true ministry of devotion and prayer. This ministry can be a form of prayer that enriches your life.

Altar Guild members sign up to serve for the weekends they are available throughout the year, so it is not an every Sunday responsibility. If you would like to learn more, please contact the church office.
