The 2020 Chancel Flower Chart is in Fellowship Hall on the right side as you enter.  You can sign up to donate chancel flowers in memory of or in honor of a loved one.  The cost is $40 and checks should be made payable to the CPC Working Guild.  If desired, you can pair up with a friend and split the cost.  Flowers can be taken home immediately after the service, or they can be designated for a Deacon to deliver to a home-bound member.  Thank you for sharing the beauty of your flowers with us in worship.
