The Altar Guild exists to serve:
by - making sure that the place of worship is maintained and set up for the times and seasons of the church year.
by - seeing to it that the paraments and linens are put out, cleaned, and stored appropriately.
by - making certain that all the preparations are made for each service and that whatever needs to be done after the service is taken care of.
All this, not for themselves, but for the glory of God and the building up of His people.
