Do you have an eye for design and color? Then you might enjoy putting your creativity to use in helping design and decorate the altar space in the Sanctuary each week. Using the weekly scripture provided by the pastors, this group meets in the Sanctuary to discuss the scripture and theme for the week and then design the space using fabrics, pieces from nature, candles, and more, to help interpret the theme. Contact Tonya Boot at email@example.com for more information.
