The Altar Guild is responsible for setting up the instruments used in worship each time the community gathers for prayer, as well as caring and cleaning for these items. Members of the Altar Guild are trained for their roles in an apprenticeship by the more experienced leaders of the group.
The Choir leads our main worship in singing hymns and psalms. They rehearse on Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings prior to worship.
The Counters assist the Treasurer by gathering on Monday mornings in teams of three to count money that has been donated to the church (all of which goes to support our mission, staff, and campus).
The Flower Guild prepares the weekly display of flowers given to the glory of God. People can donate flowers for $25 in thanksgiving or in honor of a loved one.
