Altar Committees

Altar Committees

Monthly altar committees are responsible for providing altar flowers and/ or decorations for

services and preparing Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month and other occasions.


The first-named person is the coordinator for the month and should contact other members

of the committee to reach agreement about responsibilities.


Altar committees are in charge of caring for and polishing the altar brass-ware. Artificial flowers are available for those who would like to avoid the expense of floral shop purchases. Ferns and other non-flowering plants sometimes make an attractive altar and enhance worship. When in season, or available, persons may choose to use native flowers or other media. Following services, the committees may want to distribute altar flowers to shut-ins, the sick, etc. The pastor should be furnished with information for the bulletin concerning memorial flowers.
