Altar Guild

St. John's Altar Guild Ministry serves St. John's by preparing the altar area for worship services. Join us for regular fellowship as we serve the congregation in this ministry.

What is required?

Teams of three or four members serve for a month at a time (usually twice a year). New members work with trained members and also receive printed guidelines.

During the week the Altar Guild team works to dust the altar area and place the linens for worship services. On Sunday mornings following services, we wash the Communion vessels and take linens home to be laundered. We also deliver floral arrangements, as requested, to hospitalized and homebound members.


Informational meetings (one hour long) are held at 7:00 p.m. on the second Thursday of February, May, September and November. If you have questions or would like to observe a team in action, please contact the church office 630-629-2515 x118.

For the Word of God is active and alive.

The Book of Hebrews, Chapter 4, Verse 12
