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 pastors and the Altar Guild and Sacristy Handbook by Anita S. Stauffer. Gluten-free communion bread is prepared by members. Elizabeth Kaschins and Jeri Laursen are the 2020 co-chairs.

New flagon and grape juice chalice.
