Contribution to the Soup Ministry / Altar Flowers

The Worship Team, in support of the Trinity Soup Ministry, discussed and is offering to you an option.  If you would like to sponsor the Soup Ministry instead of purchasing Altar Flowers for a particular week, you may contribute the price of altar flowers, $35, paid to Trinity, which will go to the Soup Ministry. Call the church office and reserve a week, the same as you would for altar flowers. Beautiful silk flowers will be in the altar vases, and your contribution will be appreciated! As with the flowers, the contribution may be in honor of or in memory of someone. Remember … this is an option, we will still have live altar flowers for those who wish to sponsor! ~Beth Sider, Worship Team Chair
