Pastor Steven Anderson, Gloria Dei Lutheran Church--Chicago, IL, will be leading a workshop entitled What An Altar Guild Should Know… For Real. Below is a description of the workshop.
Altar Guilds can be a joy to work with, but they can also be a challenge. Teaching reverence for holy things and good practice concerning the Lord’s Supper and Holy Baptism can be fraught with difficulty, especially if there has been many years of bad practice or neglect of teaching. This workshop will strive to give ideas on how the pastor can introduce reverent practice to Altar Guilds.
