Flowers For 2019
You have the opportunity to place flowers in the worship center in honor or memory of a special person or event. We always include a line on the back of the worship bulletin sharing who placed the flowers and the occasion. You may sign up for a Sunday at the table by the office entrance. You simply sign up for the $65 or $100 arrangement and turn your money into the church office. The florist will bill the church and place the arrangements each week.

If you want to share Christmas cards with your LaBelle family just place the cards in the corresponding alphabetized slot and put the normal price of postage in the container next to the post office. All money collected will be given to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. Please check the post office for cards given to you.
