The Chancel Guild is committed to the care of the chancel by maintaining and preparing the altar for Communion. Two members of Chancel are assigned each week to fulfill this function and we rotate the schedule according to the number of members we have. We strive to promote reverence and beauty for worship. Membership is open to all women 18 years of age or older who are communicant members of the congregation. We meet the first Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Trinity. We also host an annual salad luncheon every October, which serves as our primary fundraiser.
Chancel Guild is a great way to serve the Lord and also have fellowship with other Ladies from church. We are always happy to have new members. If you are interested in serving on the Chancel Guild, please contact the church office for more information (815) 485.6973.
ALTAR FLOWERS: Chancel Guild Members would like to thank those of you who sponsored a weekend this last year. We appreciate your support in helping us keep fresh flowers on the altar. Our 2022 calendar is now complete. A new 2023 Altar Flower Calendar will be posted towards the end of October. You will find it in the glass case hanging on the wall across from the general office. If you would like to reserve a Sunday for 2023 in memory of a loved one, to commemorate a birthday or wedding anniversary, in thanksgiving of God’s Blessings, or for any other special occasion, please fill out a sponsor order form and put it in the Chancel Guild Mailbox. The forms are located on a hook attached to the case housing the calendar. If you have any questions, please contact Kay Purnell at firstname.lastname@example.org or (815) 495-9017.
Flowers left in the refrigerator will be disposed of after 1 week.
