Altar Guild


The Altar Guild at Good Shepherd is the designated lay group of women and men from the congregation charged with the preparation of the sanctuary for all worship settings. Members of the Altar Guild prepare for changes in the liturgical seasons and for all services held in the sanctuary including those of Holy Communion, Baptism, marriage, burial, confirmation, and festivals of the church year.

Work of the Altar Guild is guided by the pastor and the Altar Guild and Sacristy Handbook by S. Anita Stauffer. Gluten free bread is prepared by members for communion.


The first person listed on the schedule is the convener for the month.  2017 co-chairs are Elizabeth Kaschins and Jeri Laursen.
