Our lives have been changed in many ways this year, but your Flower Team is striving to make our celebration of the Christmas season as warm and worshipful as it has been in the past. The Hanging of the Green Service will be on the first Sunday of Advent, November 29, at both the 9:00 and 11:00 am services. Beautiful live poinsettias have always had a place in adorning the Sanctuary, and you are invited again this year to purchase plants, $10.00 each, in honor or memory of either a loved one or a couple. Payment is needed at time of order and available through the church office, 843-524-3197. The deadline for placing orders and submitting the payment is 5:00 pm on Wednesday, November 25.

Your poinsettia purchases in the past have made it possible for us to purchase various permanent supplies which have added to the beauty of the Sanctuary, such as a new Christ candle, a beautiful mahogany stand for the Advent Wreath, and the Chrismon Tree. The addition this year will be silk poinsettias to be placed in the poinsettia tree. This will accomplish two things: the poinsettia tree will remain fresh for the entire Christmas celebration and you may now take home the poinsettias you purchased after the 11:00 worship service on Sunday, November 29. 

We sincerely wish that the observance of our Lord’s Advent will be a reminder that God is ever-present even in these uncertain times.
