|Women of the ELCA|
This community of women gathers regularly with the mission of mobilizing women to boldly act on their faith in Jesus Christ.
They gather to grow in their faith, affirm one another in their calling and to reach out to others with their offerings and projects.
Meetings are held
on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7PM in Luther Hall (except January and August).
All women of the community are welcome to attend.
This ministry involves preparing the worship space with the furnishings, appoinments, vessels, elements, linens, and
paraments used in the liturgy (Altar Guild and Sacristy Handbook, S. Anita Stauffer).
Translated, the people of this committee set up and care for the altar paraments according to the color of the liturgical season, as well as preparing for the sacraments
of Holy Communion and Baptism.
Members usually serve one month at a time, twice a year.
Montly meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of most month at 8PM.
