Altar Flowers for Worship Services

Thursday, December 15, 2016 · Home Page, Worship

The fresh flowers placed on our altars each Sunday beautify the sacred spaces of our church to honor God and are a gift to those who attend our services. Afterward, arrangements are made from those flowers and delivered to members & friends who are hospitalized. The altar flowers can be dedicated to commemorate a special event, such as birthday or anniversary, or to remember a loved one for a donation of $45.00 per dedication. Please contact Lea Ellen, 863-686-3163 or email at ldewitt@firstumc.org to reserve your date(s). Click here to download the order form.

Please note: there will be no flowers on Palm Sunday, Easter Sunday or the two Sundays closest to Christmas. For these Sundays, dedications will be open to the entire congregation by separate reservation.
