Altar Guild Schedule 2017

Directress: Helen Warburton
Treasurer: Bonnie Wedemeyer
Special Flower Assistant: Mary Norlund
In Training: Tommie Kniesly

The members of the Altar Guild serve God by caring for the altar of St. Andrew's church. They prepare for all services, assist the clergy as needed and clean up after all the services. They care for the clergy vestments, altar linens and vessels, and arrange the flowers for the altar.

Ideally, the guild operates in teams of two, with each team serving for one month twice a year. Each team prepares for the Sunday service, weekday services (when needed), as well as baptisms, confirmations, weddings, funerals and memorial services.

This is a rewarding way to serve St. Andrew's throughout the year on a personal/spiritual level and as a benefit for our church. We would welcome anyone who wishes to participate in this ministry at St. Andrew's. Contact Helen Warburton, Altar Guild Directress, for more information.

Altar Guild Prayer

Almighty God,
grant we beseech you,
that we may handle these Holy things with reverence,
and perform our work with such
faithfulness and devotion
before you and obtain your blessing,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
                                  Amen
