Altar Guild

This ministry makes ready the altar – and the church – for worship. In everyday terms, we set the table, clear the table, do the dishes, set the table for next time, prayer in action. Sacred service.

This group of parishioners are organized and trained to care for the altar, the sanctuary, and adornments and vestments of the altar, under the direction of the rector.

Our calling is to lovingly act in the name of Christ as the priest’s liturgical partner in preparing the Lord’s table and all church furnishings to most effectively enhance worship for the congregation of Grace Episcopal Church.

Our current Altar Guild members are:

  • Ellen Mettert
  • Mary Ellen Hart
  • Debbie CHase
  • Barby Gravengaard
  • Judy Porterfield
  • Marcia Fordham
