Altar Guild Welcomes New Servers

Worship is central to our life together at Mount Olive, and throughout the year, dozens of people serve in a variety of capacities to prepare and lead our services. One group of volunteers, the Altar Guild, is eager to welcome new members.

Caring for the communion vessels, linens, and flowers can be a meaningful extension of worship and spiritually rewarding. Altar Guild work is also an efficient way to serve, because members are already at church for worship.

• Prepare the altar before worship service, or clean up and set up between services (when we have two), or clean up after worship.
• You may serve alone; with a spouse, partner, or friend; or with another Altar Guild member. (You choose.)
• Attend quarterly Altar Guild meetings, held between worship services the first Sundays in February, May, and November, and after worship the first Sunday in August.

Some Altar Guild members serve once a month, while others serve more often, even several Sundays in a row. Each person signs up for the time slot and number of Sundays that suit her or his schedule.

Experienced, patient Altar Guild members provide thorough training.

If you’re interested in serving, please send a note to Or stop in the working sacristy (through the front left door as you face the altar) before or after worship to talk with a current Altar Guild member.
