They will be in the Sanctuary, Sunday, December 11, and there will be a bulletin insert that morning listing the names of the donor and the recipient. Our chancel area will be wreathed in these beautiful plants for our worship services on December 16 and December 23. You may take your plant with you following the Christmas Eve evening services if you wish to do so. Please fill out the form below. When ordering multiple plants, please write information on a separate sheet of paper and attach to the form. Mail it no later than November 28 to insure that your gift is listed in the bulletin insert.
