THE MINISTRY OF FLOWERS


Altar flowers give glory to God, beautify the sanctuary and commemorate an important person or event in your life. Fresh cut flowers represent the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus Christ for our salvation.

You can give flowers for many reasons: in memory of loved ones who have died, in honor of the birth of a child, or any other important event in your life or theirs – or in thanks to God for a blessing or simply to give glory to God. When you give the flowers, your commemoration is shared with the congregation in the worship bulletin.

After the services, the flowers are yours to take home. They will continue to glorify God and will beautify your home, or you may share them with family and friends.

Sign up for a Sunday on the Flower Chart on the bulletin board in the narthex or contact the church office, giving your preferred date(s), your name and your commemoration. Make checks payable to Grace Lutheran Church. The cost for flowers on a Sunday is $25 – please write ‘altar flowers’ on the memo line of your check and offering envelope.

Thank you for giving glory to God, beautifying the sanctuary, and sharing your commemoration with us!
