Beautifying the Chancel for Christmas at Grace 2024
As we enter Advent, we are looking forward to the celebration of Christmas and the Christmas Eve service. We hope to again beautify the Chancel with poinsettias, Norfolk pines and greens. You may help participate by either giving a donation to the general Christmas flower fund and/or by purchasing a poinsettia or a Norfolk pine tree.
This year you may participate in three different ways:
- Give a donation of $15 or more to the general Christmas flower fund;
- Purchase a poinsettia for $15
- Purchase a Norfolk pine for $30
For each donation or the purchase of a plant, you will have the opportunity to make a dedication which will be included in the bulletin on Christmas Eve, on Sunday, December 31, and in Grace Notes.
Shirley Traugott and Gloria Rainer will be available in the narthex on Sunday, December 10, to receive your donations and for you to make your dedications. Please be prepared to pay at the time you sign up with exact money or a check.
The floral display will be in the Chancel on December 24, December 31, and January 7. You may, however, take home a plant which you purchased any time after the December 24 service. If the temperatures are below freezing, there will be plastic bags available in which to place your plant to protect it from the cold.
Please make checks payable to Grace Lutheran Church, memo Christmas flowers.
We thank you for your participation and support.
