Flowers for the Altar
The Altar flowers are a welcome offering to our services. They are a symbol of new life in Christ. For these reasons, we give thanks to everyone who is moved to give flowers on a particular Sunday. People give flowers in thanksgiving to God for a family member's birthday, wedding anniversary or other blessing. They are also given in memory of a departed loved one or friend.
Altar flowers are not purchased during the following times of the year: Lent, Palm Sunday, Easter Day, Advent and Christmas. Easter and Christmas are Holy Days observed with lilies and poinsettias.
You do not have to contact a florist; all of the arrangements can be handled for you by the church Flower Guild. The cost of Altar flowers is $50.00 for 2 vases. If you should have any questions at all regarding signing up for flowers, please contact the church office at 817-326-6074 or office administrator at 817-219-1311. Please put your completed form in the collection plate or hand it to an usher. A member of the Flower Guild will contact you. If two or more persons request the same date, the Flower Guild will work with you to find an acceptable outcome. You are more than welcome to bring your own arrangement.
The flowers are yours at the end of the service. If you plan to take your flowers, please bring a container in which to transport them.
