FLOWER MINISTRY

January 15, 2017


One of the very best things our church sponsors is the flower ministry.  The Women in the Church (WIC) established this practice close to seventy-five years ago, and it has endured ever since.  In every church or organization of any size there are always individuals with medical needs that require them to remain home-bound, even if temporarily.  We have several members who, due to age, simply cannot make the journey to church.  Many of our members are in nursing homes or assisted living facilities.  They are not forgotten.

Each Sunday, the arrangements around the pulpit are removed after the second service and taken to our fellowship hall.  From there, they are divided and placed into individual vases to later be distributed to those unable to attend.   The ladies do a wonderful job and have developed a very workable procedure.  The book you see below is structured each week indicating name, address and phone number of those receiving the bouquets.  Assignments are then made for individuals volunteering to take the vases to the assigned names.

Tables are arranged with vases and the names of each recipient.  You can see from JPEGs two and three how the process works.

This book is prepared during each week and assignments made.

There are two additional tables not shown here.

As you can see, each vase has a name on it for delivery.

Without further discussion, I would like to give you some idea as to the flower arrangements provided.  Members of our church provide flowers for each Sunday’s service.  Generally, these flowers are to remember family members and loved-ones who have passed.

Let’s now take a look.  You will notice familiar backdrops in each digital.  The location never changes week after week. Please forgive the quality of these digital pictures.  I have a little over-exposure on some.

This is a very quick post but I hope you enjoy it.  It’s amazing the “good deeds” accomplished by thousands of people over our country—north, south, east and west.  People who really care.
