Christmas Memorial Poinsettias
As we prepare for Christmas, we invite you to make a donation for one or more poinsettias in memory of someone who is deceased. Please visit our Give page and select the “memorial” fund, and enter your loved one’s name in the “note” section. The cost is whatever you would like to contribute, and the memorial names will be printed in the Christmas Eve bulletins. The deadline to submit is December 11th. Your donations support the work of the Altar Guild. You may also contact Judy Bowman in the church office at (804) 359-5628 x14.

Flowers on the Altar
This Sunday’s altar flowers are given to the glory of God, in memory of Wyman Rolph by his wife Kathy, and in loving memory of John Beverley Rankin by Tom and Corbin Rankin. If you would like to remember or honor a loved one by giving the altar flowers, please contact Judy Bowman at 804-359-5628 (ext. 14), with dates and specific requests (such as colors and/or particular flowers). The cost is $100. You may mail a check or handle the cost online at ghtc.org/give.
