The Flower Circle
The Flower Circle is a long-standing organization of the church with the purpose of using Christian unity and the Spirit of God to provide the church altar with live floral arrangements each Sunday morning. The membership is open to anyone in the Church family –men or women- who are willing to give his/her time or talent to aid the organization in performing its tasks.
The meetings are held for one hour on the 2nd Sunday of the month immediately following the Worship Service. Members of our congregation are encouraged to join this organization.

The Flower Circle carries on a noteworthy tradition of purchasing the Bibles that are presented at funerals to bereaved families of Union members who pass on. As one of our longstanding members, Natalie Bundy often reminds families:
These flowers are so beautiful, but they will one day die. Yet, there is one thing that will not...the Word of our God will last forever.
