Can you believe it? It is only 53 days until Christmas!! Although we will not yet be worshiping physically together in our Sanctuary, our Flower Guild is scheduling workdays to get our worship space and exterior of our building festive for the season. Orders for wreaths and poinsettias have deadlines that are quickly approaching. As a faith family, we will celebrate the symbolism of the decorations in our Sanctuary during the Hanging of the Green Service on Sunday morning, November 29.
The decorations are provided by the donations of church members. Church members may purchase poinsettias to help provide all of our decorations. The poinsettias may be given in memory of a deceased loved one or in honor of a living person. A list of all memorials and honor gifts will be published in upcoming editions of the newsletter. We have an online option for giving again this year. If you are interested in providing a poinsettia, visit our website and follow the instructions to submit your dedications. You may even pay online! If you would prefer, you may still mail the following information and your payment (checks payable to First Baptist Church) to me at church or drop it off at the Reception Desk. Orders and checks ($30 each) should be received by Monday, November 23.
