The Mount Olive Altar Guild is comprised of volunteers who prepare the sanctuary and altar for meaningful worship. They prepare the bread, wafers, wine, and grape juice for communion at each service using the sacramental vessels. They also care for the baptismal font, the banners, candles, and altar linens to make the worship services more beautiful and meaningful. For special seasons of the church year, the altar guild decorates the worship space. The altar guild also has a special role in funerals, weddings, and baptisms, organizing the details of the services and working with pastors and parishioners. Additionally, volunteers bake bread, sew baptism napkins, launder linens and albs, and many other behind-the-scenes duties. All are welcome to serve with the Altar Guild. If you would like to be a part of this ministry, please contact Sharon Parker firstname.lastname@example.org.
