Altar Guild Contact Person: Pauline Gorsline & Nita Parmley Meetings: 1-2 times per year at the church, as needed. The St. Mark Altar Guild is responsible for preparing the sanctuary for worship. This generally means setting up for and cleaning up after communion services, arranging flowers, filling candles, and changing paraments and banners, or baking communion bread. The Altar Guild is also responsible for maintaining the albs (robes) worn by the pastor and worship assistants. There are a variety of ways in which one may volunteer to serve on the Altar Guild, most of which provide opportunity for small group fellowship. The Saturday evening service provides a unique opportunity to combine ushering service with altar guild service. The “work” of the Altar Guild is seen and appreciated by many, however the “workers” are seldom in view. There are no restrictions of age or gender to participate in the Altar Guild. A wish to quietly serve the Lord is all that is needed. This group is also responsible for decorating the sanctuary at Christmas time.
