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.
Chancel Guild also coordinates the schedule for our altar flowers each week. Flowers are placed on our altar ever Sunday to enhance and beautify our altar area in memory of a loved one, to commemorate a special birthday or wedding anniversary or in celebration of God's blessings. The flower order forms are attached to the cabinet in the hallway across from the church office. Just fill out the form and place it in the Chancel Guild mailbox in the church office. Please call Christine Stark at (815) 478.4069 if you have any questions about this.
The flower chart for 2016 has been posted. Please pick your Sunday by filling out the form or by calling Denise. The cost of flowers is $17 for both vases. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful Florist who is also a member of our church preparing the flowers for our altar each week. Our own Bonnie Norton of Country Florist is the person to thank for this wonderful service. Please remember her for your own personal floral needs. Bonnie's phone number is (815) 272.6407.
