Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:13-14

The Pleasant Grove UMC Altar Guild is a Service Ministry. The Guild’s purpose is to provide the best possible environment for our congregation’s worship of God. This committee works closely with the Pastor and the Worship Committee to provide visual elements which reflect the liturgical season.
The space to the right of the Altar Table is designated as a place of honor and is important to us. If you would like to help us celebrate and remember, or honor someone or an event, we welcome your contribution. Please call our church secretary, Diane, to add your name to the altar calendar. A reminder is that flowers must be fresh, however they do not have to be from a florist.
The Altar Guild appreciates Glennell Holbrook and Katie Wallace for their services in April. Hostesses for May are Beth Blalock and Linda Walraven.
