The Altar Guild holds a special ministry of preparing the sanctuary for worship each week and for special services. In addition to caring for the holy vessels used in Holy Communion, members also care for the sanctuary as a whole and provide flowers at

the altar each Sunday.

USHERS

Ushers will often be the first people who greet you as you enter the sanctuary. Ushers hand out bulletins, provide assistance in finding seating, and welcome guests by helping them find their way around the facility.
