Altar Flowers

Worship in our church is an experience of beauty. Every element of the service - the architecture, the altar hangings, the music, the people in the pews, and more - draws us closer to God by inviting us to bring our very best and lay it upon the altar. The flowers on our altar are an important and beautiful symbol of what we offer to God in our worship. Such floral beauty praises the life and resurrection Jesus has so freely given us, honors loved ones, and gives thanks for special people and events in our lives.

Every member of the parish is invited to contribute to the beauty of our worship by giving the altar flowers on a particular Sunday to the glory of God and in memory, thanksgiving, or celebration for people or events that are important to that donor. If you would like to make such a gift, please fill out the form below or contact Jessica Blau at  . Your altar flower dedication will appear in the pewsheet on your designated Sunday.

You can pay online here (select 'Flower Fund' and reference your dedication in the 'Optional Memo' area) or send your check to:

On the special feasts of Christmas and Easter, we decorate the entire church as well as the altar with flowers and greenery. Special flower funds are maintained for parishioners who wish to honor loved ones on these special occasions. We ask a minimum donation of $50.00 for Christmas or Easter flowers. All donor dedications will appear in the Christmas or Easter service books.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and for contributing to the beauty of our worship.
