The flowers on the altar each Sunday are a gift from the people of Christ Church and are dedicated either to the memory of loved ones, or in celebration of something special. The flowers are paid for by donations to the flower fund and are delivered to members of the parish who are in the hospital, nursing home and to shut-ins. If you would like to dedicate the altar flowers, please contact Carol Miller, 736-3132.
