How Can I Put God's Word into ACTION?
The Altar Guild is responsible for the Sacred Vessels used in worship and for the general decorum of the Altar area at Christ Church. It is a most important ministry. The Altar Guild works diligently throughout the year to prepare for and clean up after services. It also looks after the flowers which adorn the altar.
Mrs. Diana Tadler is the Director of the Altar Guild. The Altar Guild continues to need further support. Those who have interest in the Altar Guild will be trained to do their work. Obviously the greater number of people who serve on the Altar Guild allows everyone to have a reasonable amount of work to do and no one to be overworked. If you would have interest in participating in the Altar Guild, please contact Diana Tadler directly or call the church office. Training for those who are on the Altar Guild or those who wish join the Altar Guild is provided throughout the year.
Lay Readers read the Old Testament lesson and the Epistle at services of the Holy Eucharist on Sundays. Young people and adults who are confident in the reading abilities and are able to project their voices are invited to share in the reading of the lessons. A short, personal training session is required for lay readers.
Intercessors lead the prayers of the people at the Sunday Eucharist. As in the case of lay readers, intercessors play an important role in our Sunday liturgy. All intercessions are fully written-out, including the names of those for whom we pray. Short training sessions are available for those wishing to be intercessors.

Am I scheduled to help during the service this month?
I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart; And I will glorify thy name for evermore. Psalm 86:12
