It has also been used in memory of loved ones, anniversary date etc. Their support and generosity have also greatly added to the ambience of our weekly Sunday Services.

We have put up a weekly schedule for floral offerings on the [Church Office] notice board for your convenience. Dates for floral offerings may be chosen in advance. Do also remember to include your name, purpose and contact number on this schedule. As a guideline, floral offering should be at least $100. You may drop your cheque payable to “Charis Methodist Church” indicating “Floral Offering” and date of offering at the back of the cheque into the offering bag or come to the Church Office to donate in cash to our Church Office Staff Thor Bee. Your contribution is always much appreciated!
