What is the Flower Guild?
Visitors to St. Andrew’s often comment on the grace and simplicity of its interior. The inside of the church has little ornamentation, nevertheless, fresh flowers always enhance this simplicity. What visitors may not realize is that these flowers are special offerings to God and to the St. Andrew’s community. Each week the members of the Flower Guild offer up their own gifts by lovingly decorating the church.
Flower Guild members select, order and arrange flowers to decorate the altar for worship on Sundays and holidays. Members of the Flower Guild create and place flower arrangements on the altar for weddings and funerals.
The flowers help adorn the Altar area for worship and praise. A different member of the guild is on duty each week to prepare the flowers, and the members are responsible for having arrangements completed on time and for maintaining them during the week.
If you have two hours a on either a Friday or Saturday morning once a month for purchasing flowers and arranging them into attractive containers for the church altar along with a love of beauty and an interest in expressing it then the Flower Guild might be for you.
Members spend about two hours on either Friday or Saturday morning purchasing flowers and arranging them into attractive containers for the church altar. Training in the arrangement of flowers is offered from time to time. Contact the Church Office if you have an interest in serving God and his Church in this way.
