The Altar Guild works to ensure that the sanctuary is kept neat and beautiful to glorify God and enhance worship for our congregation. Duties include caring for furnishings, linens and paraments, and preparing the worship space for special seasons and church festivals, as well as celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Communion and occasional services such as baptisms and confirmations. For more information, contact Lisa Harris or email@example.com

Worship Slide Projectionist
Illuminate our worship services with words and images projected on the front and back walls of the Sanctuary. This is a job that requires focused attention for the whole hour, as some parts of the service move quite quickly, and many members of the congregation rely exclusively on the projected text for guidance. You don't need to create the slides, you are simply making sure to click through the slides at the appropriate point in the service. For more information, contact email@example.com
Share your love of music during our worship services by joining our music groups.
