“When I realized my late grandmother had more flowers than I knew what to do with, I began praying how I could be intentional with all of these beautiful flowers while being a blessing to those who needed a glimpse of God’s love,” Chelsea said. “One day it just came to me. Our church could collect vases and Wallace Women could make flower arrangements for our homebound members to remind them they are loved, prayed for, and special to their Wallace family,” she added.
That is exactly what the women of Wallace Memorial Baptist Church did. Around 40 ladies of all ages gathered at the church in late June for a “Love Community” fellowship and made flower arrangements for their homebound members. According to Chelsea Murphy, “God did more than we could have asked or imagined.” (Ephesians 3:20).
The group made over 200 flower arrangements and delivered them to their homebound residents. Because of the abundant amount of flowers and vases that were donated, they were also able to make flower arrangements for some new faces in the assisted living and senior living facilities. What better way to brighten the day of shut-ins than with a visit letting them know that they are special and are not forgotten in this season of life. Members from Wallace Memorial joyfully delivered all of the beautiful arrangements. They also shared with residents how God is working at the church and let them know that Wallace Memorial has a place for everyone. “We are thankful for God’s direction as He leads the Women’s Ministry at Wallace to connect with other ladies and make an impact in the community,” Chelsea continued.
