Altar Guild

The altar guild is looking for help. This group is solely made up of women. Since the morning of Christ’s Resurrection, as the women approached to prepare the body of Christ for burial, ladies have gathered before the Sunday service to prepare the body of Christ for Communion. If you are interested in helping with this sacred task, contact Lillian Holtum at 360-460-5655.
