Altar Guild is looking for some new members. This would involve setting up for communion, and helping to clean up afterwards.  Depending on how many members we have, you would only have to do this 4 or 5 times per year. “We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”  Ephesians 2:10
