The Altar Guild serves God as the caretakers of His Sanctuary at Aquia Church. We are organized into four teams and work on a rotating weekly basis. Hence our "duty" comes around about once a month, and we are never working alone. We prepare the Altar for all services according to the needs and requests of the clergy. We purchase and/or care for the wine, bread, candles, linens, vestments, furnishings, and plateware as needed for worship. An Altar Guild member is present at most services. Training is ongoing by the team leaders and new members are always welcome. Three teams meet on Saturday mornings to do their preparations; one team meets on Fridays. Some members are only able to help on Sunday mornings. Each member makes an important contribution to the Guild! Total time commitment is usually less than 4 hours per month. Altar Guild work is an offering of time and many talents, a quiet ministry of love undertaken in the name of Our Lord. Please join us! For more information please contact Ellen Brandon.
