Flower Donations
The lovely flowers that are on the church altar every week are an important part of our worship services.  They can be dedicated for celebratory reasons or to remember a loved one. There are many dates open in September through December for altar flower donations for both the church and the chapel.  The cost of the arrangements in the chapel is $70 and the cost for the church arrangements is $100.  You can share a week in the church with another parishioner with each paying $50.  You can take the flowers home with you after the service to enjoy in your home or donate them to another person in need.   There is a calendar in the hallway with a list of all of the available dates.   For more information, please call Sue Kennedy at 908-234-0267. 

Tend the Giving Garden
