Lily-29809_640Each Easter, it has been our tradition to adorn our Sanctuary with with white lilies to remind us of the freshness and rebirth offered by the resurrection of our Lord and Savior on that first Easter morning.

The lilies may be purchased in memory or in honor of a loved one, and then picked up after the Easter service.  Order forms are provided in the church bulletins, and you can also print out a copy here: Easter Lily Order Form

Please complete the form and drop it in the offering plate or leave it in the church office (no phone orders, please!).  The cost of each lily is $9.00.  Checks should be made payable to “Pitman United Methodist Church”.

The deadline for orders is Sunday April 7.

As you gaze on these lilies on Easter morning, let them remind you of Christ.

The whiteness shows His purity (and by His grace- the purity He offers us).

The trumpet shaped pedals inspire us to tell others of His glory and of the grace and wonder of Easter Redemption.
