Flowers for Sunday Worship

You may contribute to our worship of God by providing two floral arrangements for Sunday services. After worship, if you wish, the flowers may be used in our Flower Ministry. Church members will divide them into smaller arrangements and deliver them, along with a caring card, to our members who cannot come to worship with us. You may reserve a Sunday to donate flowers, through Sign Up Genius: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c094baaaf28a5fe3-sanctuary, or contact Kate in the Church Office: kfeldman@oapc.us.
