Poinsettias Point to Families (Order by 12/14/20)

Posted by on Nov 28, 2020 in EventAnnouncement, Worship & Prayer | 0 comments

One of our ongoing Advent traditions is to place an arrangement of poinsettias in the front of our church.  A pair of “Christmas Tree” shelf structures has been built for this purpose, and these sheets of plywood have become as much of a PUMC tradition as the Star Tree or Nativity display.  In the weeks leading up to Christmas, people purchase these 7″ pots to be used in the display.  They are frequently given in memory or in honor of a family or church family member.  When placed on the Advent Display, we are reminded of our family, both present and eternal.  During this pandemic and period of “social distancing,”  the presence of these poinsettias points us to the presence of our church family (even if we can’t see them during the Live Stream service). 

After the Christmas Eve service, these poinsettias are given to the people who purchased them.  Many of them are also donated to local nursing homes and shut-ins. 

Outside of the church, after Christmas, these poinsettias continue to point others to family- and to our Savior.


It’s Time to Order Poinsettias
