flower guild

flowersThe ministry of the Flower Guild is to show the congregation and visitors the beautiful God’s creation and how great his love is for us. After the flower beautify the church on Sunday, they are rearranged on Mondays into smaller bouquets and taken to the veterans’ home, nursing homes, and to shut-in members of the Church.

Floral arrangements at St. Stephen’s are created by devoted volunteers as the Flower Guild, carrying on a tradition that goes back to the earliest days of the parish. The work of the Guild is a partnership between the donors, who contribute funding for flower memorials and thanksgivings, and members of the Guild, who give their time to obtain the materials and create the arrangements. The Flower Guild assists in the worship of the parish by providing and preparing flowers or greens at the altar and in other places in and outside the church building for all Sunday services, holy days and other special occasions. Only natural materials are used.

Please join us for this ministry—no experience is necessary, and we’ll be glad to help you learn.
