The Greening of the Church
Volunteers are needed, both ladies and gentlemen, to assist in the annual two-day holiday event traditionally referred to as The Greening of the Church.  Simply put, it’s time to start planning the project to prepare and hang the Christmas decorations in the church. The schedule is as follows:
  • Friday, December 19, at 8:00 a.m. through noontime in Lewis Hall.  All the fruit will be wired and placed on the wreaths.  Please bring with you wire cutters, scissors or shears that will cut pine branches and bunched pine needles. Your help will be needed even if you do not have these tools!
  • Saturday, December 20, at 8:00 a.m. through noontime in Lewis Hall and the Church. Drivers of pick-up trucks, station wagons, and vans are asked to be at the Parish House at 8:00 a.m. to load the completed wreaths, roping and baby’s breath for transportation to the church.  Volunteers not assisting with transporting the greens are asked to be at the church between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m.
Volunteers will be performing a number of duties. “The Baby’s Breath Society” will convene in the Governor’s Pew for the annual stemming of the flowers that adorn many of the wreaths.  Garlands and wreaths will be hung both inside and outside the church, so dress warmly.  If you have a ladder (all lengths are needed), please bring it. Shears and wire cutters will also be needed.  If you have any questions, please email greens@brutonparish.org.
