addition of each individual flower, and thus it is with our church
community: it would not be the same without each and every one of us.

Thus this service is a statement of our community.” Come join us as we once again celebrate the gorgeous bouquet of our diversity. And don’t forget to bring some flowers from your garden or maybe the local farmers market!
