Poinsettias will decorate our Sanctuary for the month of December as we honor the time of Advent and then celebrate Christmas. At this time, you are invited to place an order in honor or memory of a loved one or special event. Each arrangement costs $10.00.
History of the poinsettia: The shape of the plant’s flower and leaves resemble the Star of Bethlehem, which led the Magi to the Christ Child. The red color reminds us of Christ’s Blood, shed for our salvation. Some poinsettias have white leaves, which remind us of Christ’s purity. Green symbolizes life and hope.
Dedicating poinsettias to your loved ones is a simple, beautiful way to honor them and decorate Highland Park.
