The Stewardesses of Reid Temple assist the Board of Stewards in the administration of its duties. They are responsible for preparing the church altar before each Sunday service, to ensure that the Communion linens and utensils are clean and that the altar rail is dressed. They also order the elements of the Lord’s Supper for consecration and administration to the Pastor and congregation. During Sunday services—when they are required to dress in white garments for special visibility and to sit together at the front of the church, close to the altar—members of the Board of Stewardesses assist at the altar during Baptisms, prayers, confessions, and rededications.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE/VOLUNTEER
Members of the Board of Stewardesses are nominated by a member of the Board of Stewards and approved by the Senior Pastor.
This ministry meets every Saturday before the 1st Sunday at 11:00am on the Reid Temple-Glenn Dale Campus.
