WORSHIP-RELATED MINISTRIES

Altar Guild

This group ensures that candles are prepared for worship services, and ensures that the correct paraments adorn the chancel area of the church. They also assist in keeping the area clean. If you would like to help, please contact Julie Weiss at 989-652-3815


Church Banners

Banners are made with designs proposed for the various themes and seasons of the church year. As the seasons change, so do the banners. Because these banners and other paraments are not sewn, they are of cut-and-paste type, no real artistic/sewing skills are required. Four parament hangar hooks are used, as well as banner poles for display. For information about joining this ministry contact Elaine Walter via email or phone at 989-652-6374.


Church Beautification

The work done by this ministry is visible throughout the year including the following interior and exterior displays: Christmas altar display, garland, Christmas trees; “Joy,” “Peace,” and manger scene outside the front of the church; Easter altar display, sunrise lighting, narthex Easter cross, tomb and crosses set up outside; Advent wreath (interior and exterior). As well, summer flowers are planted in May and tended through October. Contact Vera Bamberg at 989-652-9596 for more information about this ministry.


Fellowship Pad Collection

We pick up the filled-out fellowship pad pages at the main church on regular intervals and deliver them to recording personnel at the church office for input. We also maintain the pads and other literature in the pews. For information about helping with the collection of Fellowship Pad pages call Wahnita Rupprecht at 989-652-6580.
