Flower Team

Twelve members of the church make up the Flower Team. During the holiday seasons, we come in during quiet times, transform the church inside and out, to delight and inspire adults and children alike as we celebrate our holy seasons. Our busiest times are before Christmas and Easter. The FLOWER TEAM is also responsible for coordinating donations of altar flower arrangements for every month of the year. This is an especially important responsibility since the arrangements represent special times of remembrance and celebration of our church family. After each service, the arrangement flowers are divided into mini-arrangements for the donor and for delivery to those whose spirit we want to lift up. If you are interested in providing an altar arrangement, please call the church office at 781-444-2510 or click here.
