Memorial ~ Honoring ~ Special Occasions
Providing flowers to enhance the worship service can be a wonderful way to memorialize a loved one, honor someone, or mark a special occasion. Each Sunday service provides the opportunity to donate flowers for worship. Several times during the year for special holidays or seasons, larger displays from many donors are utilized. This page is intended to provide helpful information and instructions on how to provide flowers for the church. If you need further information, please call the church office at 508-748-1053. Office hours are listed on our home page.
Sunday Worship Flowers
Individuals or families can sign up to provide Sunday worship service flowers by emailing Tinker Saltonstall or calling the church office. Please call or email the church office with your dedication wording for the bulletin.
Flowers or plants provided can be your own creations or ordered from a florist. Edens in Marion has access to the church and will deliver. Otherwise, you can bring your flowers 30 minutes prior to the service and place them on the stand adjacent to the alter table. Flowers can be taken after the service by the donor to use as they wish.
Holiday and Seasonal Displays
Several times during the year there is the opportunity to purchase plants for larger displays in and around the church such as spring plants during Easter, chrysanthemums during the fall, and poinsettias during Advent and Christmas. These reasonably priced plants are ordered through the church by order forms that are provided in the newsletter, bulletins, and at the church office. The forms with dedication wording completed must be returned to the church office with checks made out to the First Congregational Church of Marion. No orders will be taken without payment.
Plants for these displays are available to be taken after the holiday or season. They must be ordered through the church and there is no guarantee of color.
