Do you ever walk into a church’s worship space and wonder, ‘How does this place look so good?’ Certainly their are people that work on the property and maintain it, but the “look” often belongs to the Altar Committee.
The Altar Committee enjoys seeing that the worship space is kept beautiful and in good order. We glorify God by providing a setting that helps the congregation worship in a meaningful manner.
We set up for communion and baptisms plus care for linens, robes, paraments, silver and brass. We also help coordinate decorations for the worship space and have begun a congregational education emphasis.
We have monthly meetings, where we plan, learn, and enjoy each other’s company.
An offshoot of this group is the Liturgical Arts Committee. They have been meeting this summer and fall to select new paraments for the sanctuary for the season of Advent. We hope you’ll join us and see the beauty in the details!
