FLOWERS:  When Kelly placed her beautiful flower arrangement in the Sanctuary, some of us realized how much we’ve missed seeing the beautiful floral decorations at the front of the church.  In years past, we encouraged our church members to put their names on a calendar for Sundays that they would like to place flowers.  Some did this in honor or memory of someone or just because they wanted to glorify their Savior on a particular Sunday.  We have a calendar on the bulletin board just inside the Educational Building (right hand side) labeled FLOWERS for your use.
