Flower Ministries

Church-FlowersSt. John’s Flower Ministry is all about cheering and beautifying, starting with the altar vases and flower baskets which are part of our church service in the Sanctuary on Sunday mornings and on special holidays. These flowers hear our prayers and listen to our music and our sermon. Our florist prepares seasonal arrangements that take on different meanings throughout our church calendar.

If you want to join our team and can offer your service one Sunday a month, please contact Claudia Patterson via email or stop in the church office for more information. 

Our delivery volunteers are part of a participatory circle – we “recycle” cheer, hope, and love. When donors want their flowers sent out after the service, team members deliver these flowers to shut-ins, hospitalized members, nursing home residents, or to someone on our prayer list. Our team is dedicated and their efforts are both fulfilling and personally rewarding. Sometimes team members take along a bulletin, sit and chat, offer a prayer, a smile, and even a hug.

If you want to order a flower vase (if the date is available) or a basket (any Sunday except during Lent) for a special celebration, a remembrance, or to honor someone, please call the church office. (Note: St. John’s observes a barren altar during Lent.)

Thank you for your support. The church office takes orders for Christmas poinsettias and Easter lilies that are not already part of the chancel setting (see Eagle Wings and the Sunday bulletins for more information).
