New! Vestment Care Committee

New! Vestment Care Committee 


In the third chapter of Colossians, we are called to cloth ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.  As part of our rites, our worship leaders clothe themselves with garments that allow us to worship in the beauty of holiness.  These vestments, used by our crucifers, acolytes, Cherub Choir members, Chorister Choir members, Emmanuel Choir members, etc. require loving care. Therefore, Dr. Homer Ferguson is calling for volunteers to serve on the Vestment Care Committee.  The role of this committee is to launder our vestments twice a year – in June and again the first week of January – such that we can extend the life of our vestments and present ourselves before God in the most beautiful way possible.  The vestments are in two pieces – a cassock (robe) and the cotta.  Both launder in a standard washing machine in warm water. The cottas do require some light ironing.  Caring for our vestments is a spiritual practice.  If you would like to be part of this care committee, please contact Dr. Ferguson at church, via e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots.
