Winter Weekends Available for Altar Flowers!!!
Help us add some beauty to the Sanctuary during these dreary winter months by signing up to donate the weekly Altar Flowers. The 2019 Calendar is on the bulletin board outside Jeff’s office and dedication forms are located underneath the calendar. Flower dedications are $40 and created by Chatham's Sunnywoods Florist. Donating altar flower on Sunday is a wonderful way to honor, celebrate, or commemorate a special occasion or a loved one. You may chose to take the flowers with you after the 11:00 service or specify to have them donated. Flowers donated are brought to our church members at home or in care facilities. The colorful bouquets not only brightens their day, they offer spiritual support and reminds recipients that they are so very important to our church community.
