If you have a lily that you'd like to bring to brighten the church on Sunday morning, that would be much appreciated -- then take it home for your family dinner table. Just come with it on Sunday morning. Any other garden flowers that are blooming are also welcome to help decorate the sanctuary in celebration of Jesus' resurrection morning!
