All Saints’ Altar Guild Purpose

We are a fellowship ministry of the parish. Our purpose is to render, with dedication and loving attention to detail, all Holy Housework needed for liturgy and worship at All Saints’ with an intention of creating a sacred environment of trust, peace, hope, charity and love, all for the greater glory of God.

 

What Do We Do and How Are We Organized?

Our Altar Guild works in assigned teams designated for the month. Each team has an experienced leader.

Set-up is done on Saturdays for the Sunday services, and schedules are arranged to change between services and the clean up duties after the last service.

New members receive training and guidance from the team members, as well as available manuals and illustrations and check lists to ensure the correct steps are completed. It’s an easy process.

Each month, there are end-of-month cleaning duties. Working with a team results in a comfortable atmosphere where we learn and expand our knowledge of worship. Our team leaders set up schedules to accommodate our lifestyles and sharing the duties makes this a rewarding fulfillment of expanding our faith and contributing to the family at All Saints’. If you are interested in this ministry at All Saints’, contact the Altar Guild Directress, Betsy Watson @ 863-688-2162.

 

Our Prayer

O Lord Jesus Christ, be among us as we carry out the duties of All Saints' Altar Guild. Guide our minds to right intentions, our hands to devoted work, and our hearts to imitate your love. As we go about the sanctuary labors, may we find your peace flowing through us.
