Every year First has a beautiful display of a variety of blooming flowers/plants for our Sunday morning Easter worship Services. The flowers are usually given in memory of or in honor of someone special to you and/or your family. It is a nice way to recognize your loved ones and to show gratitude for God’s many blessings.
To purchase a plant for the Easter Garden, complete an order form (1 order form sheet per plant) and return to the church office or place in the decorated box at the information desk with check enclosed. No cash. Please do not place your order in the offering plate. Order deadline is Wednesday, March 29th. Click here for order form.
