Spotlight on Ministry — Flower Guild

The St. Matthew’s Flower Guild Ministry has been happily adding life, beauty, and a deeper meaning to our worship at the altar each week for about 2 1/2 years. The use of flowers in the church is our expression of joy and love for the Lord. We arrange in accordance with the Church calendar, coordinating with Mother Liz and getting input from the Worship committee to better comprehend the Liturgy and the direction of the Seasons. After Sunday services, the flower arrangements are disassembled to take on Eucharistic visits, to share with the weekly donors of the flowers, and to beautify the church spaces for weekly activities. Also, we have occasional demonstrations by guest speakers that are open to interested members of the Parish. These thoughts from Flower Guild member Tammy Pearson:

“Participation in the Flower Guild has been a gift to me in so many ways. Not only have I felt able to make a contribution to our worship service, it has enabled fellowship with many wonderful members of the parish I may not have gotten to know otherwise. The Flower Guild is such a positive and uplifting group. I encourage anyone who is interested to check it out. We all have different styles and gifts; this is a ministry that is very inclusive and only requires a willing spirit!”
