The Flower Guild provides the church with beautiful flower arrangements throughout the year. Its members follow the pattern set up for the church year by the readings for each Sunday and by the liturgical season. Each week the readings have a theme -- a message that ties them together. The clergy use this theme as a starting point for the sermon; the musicians use it for making selections; and the flowers often reflect that theme. Sometimes the theme does not translate in a visual way, so the flowers will highlight the dedication or the color for that liturgical season. Other times, the arrangements may just represent a joy to the glory of God. The Flower Guild is open to all who would like to learn about flowers. Please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-486-5374.

Rover or email@example.com or 770-486-5374.

The coffee gathering after the Sunday morning service is important to allow time for fellowship. Members and visitors can enjoy the delicious food and beverages provided by the church. Looking ahead and anticipating Church membership growth, we want to ensure that new members and visitors continue to feel welcome.

All that is required is setting up food and coffee before the service as well as clean up. Please call Kim Hickmott through the church office at 770-486-5374 for more information on how you can participate.
