Most weeks, sanctuary flower arrangements are artificial. These beautiful displays are the work of Dennis Wood who has done such a wonderful job that many do not realize these are not live arrangements.
Since there are not many sponsors for sanctuary flowers, the cost was cutting into our ministry budgets. The Worship Committee, Finance Committee, and Church Council decided that using artificial flower arrangements is a great way to cut costs so that we may be good stewards of the monies that are given for ministry.
Live flowers in honor of or in memory of a loved one remains an option because we can order as needed. If you are interested in dedicating sanctuary flowers, live or silk, call the church office to schedule your request. We can order them for you, or you may contact a florist of your choosing.
