Altar Guild


The Altar Guild is a dedicated group of members who care for God’s altar by making sure that everything is in place for the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.  We meet to launder and care for the altar linens, polish the silver and brass, set out the wine and the bread, and prepare the candles to ensure the altar is ready for services.  We gather together for special occasions to prepare the sanctuary for funerals and other services during Advent and Lent.  The work of the Altar Guild is rewarding and interesting. 
If you would like to join us and participate in this very special ministry, please contact the church at (202) 582-7740.
