Flower Guild

IMG_6188St. Peter’s Flower Guild welcomes you to our ministry – to work with us, to contribute flowers for worship, or to help in the garden. We believe the beauty of God’s creation, changing with earthly seasons and with liturgical calendar, enriches our worship. We make it easy for parishioners who wish to donate flowers for Sunday worship as memorials or thanksgivings. We decorate the church for festival holidays of Easter and Christmas, reinforcing the joy we feel at those special times of year. Greens and palms bear witness to Advent, Lent and Palm Sunday. Red flowers remind us that it is Pentecost or St. Peter’s Day; white, All Saints.
