Worship is one of the core activities in a Christian congregation and the Altar Guild provides a much needed and valuable contribution to the worship life of the Christian congregation. These volunteers clean and care for all the furnishings in the chancel, the sacred vessels used in worship and the linens and other sacred items used in Holy Redeemer’s worship services. The members of the Altar Guild also change the paraments and decorate the sanctuary to reflect the various holy days and seasons of the church year. These dedicated volunteers make sure that everything needed for worship is in place and ready to go when God’s people arrive. While they don’t often serve in the public eye, their ministry on behalf of God’s people is indispensable. Both women and men can join the Altar Guild.
