Purpose

To oversee the obtaining and placement of memorial altar flowers, plants, and greens in the sanctuary throughout the year and to distribute flowers and plants to members who are unable to attend church services.

Responsibilities

  1. Oversees the weekly placement of altar flowers.
  2. Decorates the church for holiday worship at Easter and Christmas. The committee coordinates parishioners purchasing lily and poinsettia plants, which are used to decorate the church and later picked up by the purchaser or donated for delivery to people who are house bound. This requires a great deal of record-keeping and financial bookkeeping in a short time frame and is a task for well organized individuals.
  3. Coordinates information with the office for proper recognition in church bulletins, and other record-keeping requirements.
  4. Obtains information about shut-ins and hospital and nursing home patients and distribute plants and flowers to them.
  5. Prepares annual report on activities, expenditures and budget recommendations for review at the annual meeting.

Membership

There is no fixed membership, either in numbers or in term of office, but at least two members -- the Chair and Vice-Chair -- are elected at the annual meeting to serve a three-year term. Members volunteer or are recruited by the Chair or Vice-Chair of the committee.

The committee meets as needed. Once a year they meet to plan and prepare the Altar Flower annual report to the church membership.
