Dear Members and Friends:
The flowers, for our beautiful Chancel, have traditionally been paid for by a combination of member donations for memorials and the Chancel Committee budget. Flowers are always on the Communion Table every week of the year, except during lent.
Unfortunately, the cost of purchasing flowers each week has gone way beyond the Chancel Committee’s resources.
So now, the Chancel Committee is seeking members and friends to help defray the Committees expenses by making a donation. People in the past have had a number of motivations to give flowers. Among the examples are: honoring a loved one, celebration for a new birth, an anniversary, In thanksgiving for parents, grand-parents grand-children.
Flower may also be given as living prayers and symbols for peace and hope. The donors and the names of those honored are always printed in the order of service.
The Committee will continue with the traditions of sending flowers to the sick, decorating the sanctuary during Advent and Easter, giving plants to children at Easter, and delivering to our shut-ins.
If you would like more information on how you can donate flowers for the Sunday service please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can also be reached at 781-383-9028.
Chancel Committee Chair.
