Master Class 016: Altar Guild 101 with Hobey Hinchman
Caring for a congregation’s sacred treasures is one of the Church’s most valuable and essential ministries. Yet the work of the Altar Guild is one of the lesser known and more exacting ministries in a church.
So what does the Altar Guild do? How does it do it? And would you like to help?
In this class, former National Altar Guild president, Hobey Hinchman introduces us to the ministry of the Altar Guild and tells us why this ministry is so essential.
In this class you will learn:
• What altar guilds do
• What are the expectations of Altar Guild members and how to become a member
• The Spiritual side of Altar Guild ministry
• Best practices in the care and handling of holy items
