The Altar Guild is made up of church members who serve the Lord and the church by caring for the altar and the ceremonial aspects of church services. They keep the Chancel area in good order, prepare for Holy Communion, set out flowers for worship services, fill oil candles, change banners and paraments, make baptism banners, and clean Communion vessels, linens and acolyte robes. In addition, they serve as wedding consultants, meeting with couples weeks before the wedding to provide a tour of the church facilities and review decoration, usage, and clean-up policies. Members serve on a regular schedule or may serve as substitutes. Altar Guild meets quarterly at 7:00 pm on the fourth Thursday of the month (January, April, July & October); guests are always welcome. Contact Directress Mary Temme to learn more or to get involved.

Grace Lutheran Ladies Aid meets at the Church the second Wednesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. unless publicized otherwise. The objective of Ladies Aid is to further Christian love and fellowship; perform such work as is necessary for the home congregation; and help support charitable endeavors. After 90 years the organization continues to meet these goals by collecting mites for missions, serving funerals, visiting church members in need of comfort and prayer, making quilts for the less fortunate, and performing any other duties when called upon. We serve the Lord with gladness and welcome visitors and new members.
