Sponsoring Altar Flowers

Altar flowers are a great way to beautify the sanctuary and remind your fellow worshipers of the new life that Jesus brings. They are also a great way to commemorate an event near a specific date, or honor/remember someone close to your heart.  You can now sponsor altar flowers for a specific week.

Temple Goes Solar
