Beginning in August 2019, the process for ordering flowers for the Sunday altar table will be changing. This new ordering process will give church members more flexibility when choosing to donate flowers for our Sunday altar table.
Benefits of this new ordering process include the following:
- Church members will now have the freedom to choose their own floral shop.
- Church members can choose what kind of flowers and colors they want in their bouquet (preferable at least 18 inches in height).
- Church members can choose what price point is comfortable for them and make their payment directly to the floral shop.
- Church members can ask their floral shop to deliver the flowers to MPUC. Must be delivered on Saturday between 8-11 a.m. and placed in the vase by the open mailboxes in the outer office.
- Church members can choose to bring the flowers to church themselves, preferably by 9:30 a.m. on Sunday.
- Church members can choose to use flowers from their own gardens, or flowers purchased at a local farmers market.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I make a donation of flowers?
A: Contact Ginger Schneider in the MPUC office to request a Sunday, either by phone at (651) 698-8871 or email at email@example.com.
Q: What information do I need to provide Ginger when requesting a Sunday?
A: An acknowledgement of flowers will be printed in the Sunday bulletin, so Ginger will ask for any “dedicated to…/in celebration of…/in memory of…” information you wish to share.

A: Ginger will be able to help place an order, with you making payment of $30 to MPUC.
