The Flower Guild wants you to know that there are plenty of slots open this summer for Sunday’s flower arrangements. Please consider making a donation of flowers (either money to buy them, or the flowers themselves if your garden is in bloom) in honor of a loved one this summer.
In addition…we need vases! Sunday’s flowers are hand-delivered to members and friends who need a little cheering up. Clean out your cabinets and bring unused vases to church on Sunday…look for the box in the narthex marked “Vases for Flower Guild.”
Flowers grace our sanctuary each Sunday, and bring joy to people’s lives. Seeing colorful arrangements, with each flower uniquely displaying God’s immense creative power, contributes to our spiritual experience in church. Visual elements, together with music and the spoken word, ensure we have a spiritual feast each Sunday.
Flowers are purchased and arranged each Sunday morning by Flower Guild members Erika Hagopian, Inger Hewitt, Joanne Jones, and Maureen Kalbus. You can support this important ministry by dedicating flowers in memory of someone, or to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, celebration. Or consider dedicating flower in simple thankfulness, for all to enjoy.
When you dedicate flowers, your name and dedication will be printed in the church bulletin (or not, if you prefer). To make a flower donation, please fill in a Flower Request form, put it and a check in an envelope, and drop it in the offering plate. You can also send it to the Church Office, attention Maureen Kalbus. Maureen will contact you to confirm and discuss preferences in flowers and colors. Checks should be made payable to First Presbyterian Church of San Anselmo and “Flower Guild” written on the memo line. You can also download a form to print on your computer by clicking here.
After each service, the flowers are arranged in vases and taken to members of the congregation who are sick or homebound. Your beautiful flower arrangements are part of an important church ministry and appreciated by by many, both in church and at home.
