Altar Guild

Altar Guild

The Altar Guild is a dedicated group of women that makes sure the details of every service are taken care of - from flowers, to bread and wine, to linens and vestments.  You'll recognize the women who serve on this guild by the blue coats they wear when serving. There are several teams within the Altar Guild that rotate week to week.  They all meet quarterly with the Directress and Rector.  For more information contact Kristine Taylor.

Additionally within the Guild there are two Committees:AGCandle

Bread Committee
