Flower Guild and Schedule

The Fork Church Flower Guild is a ministry that contributes to the beauty of our worship. Members arrange flowers for Sunday and occasional special services. The flowers are either purchased with Guild funds or obtained as gifts from area gardens. The Guild supplies the oasis and containers necessary for arrangements. Contributions to the Altar Guild Fund (Treasurer—Alice Noland) provide for the purchase of flowers. Flowers may be given in honor or memory of a loved one; the sign up sheet is in the church entryway. It is the responsibility of the Flower Guild member to ensure that the flowers are in place by the 10 AM Sunday service and that they are taken down after the service. The Guild works as a group to decorate the Church for Christmas and Easter.

We WELCOME hearing from interested people who want to know more and participate in a fun and rewarding activity while beautifying the church and bringing glory to God!  Please call Emily Dickson at 804-339-1757 for more information.
