Flower Gifts for Our Chalice Table

Small bouquets, formal bouquets, and potted plants. They’ve all made our Sunday services more inviting.

We’ve all appreciated the flowers that have adorned out chalice table on Sunday mornings. Many have come from the home gardens and plants; others have been gifts from special events. Thank you, generous donors!

Our UUCS Aesthetics Committee would like to offer UUCS members and friends the opportunity to provide flowers for a particular Sunday. Blooms from your garden, inexpensive bouquets from grocery stores, or more formal florist arrangements are all welcome.

You can sign up for a particular Sunday through Sign Up Genius and can add details there if you want to offer the flowers to honor a person or occasion or in memory of someone. Those gifts will be acknowledged in the Order of Service for that particular Sunday. In addition, you can indicate if you’d like to be notified of any upcoming vacant Sundays for flowers. Our signup includes dates through July 3, 2022.

Sign Up Genius will send you a reminder 3 days ahead of time for your Sunday.

  • Delivery of Flowers: Flowers need to arrive at the church at 9 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Both doors to the sanctuary foyer will be open. Please wear a mask, practice social distancing, and place your flowers on the Chalice Table if you feel comfortable coming in. You are also welcome to place the flowers on the table at the back of the sanctuary, then announce their arrival. The taping of the service is limited to a minimal number of people to provide ultimate protection for everyone serving that Sunday, so you won’t be able to stay in the sanctuary for the taping of the service.
  • Plans for your flowers following the service: Notify the worship associate as to your plans for the flowers once the service has ended. Let them know if you’d like to pick them up at 11:00 and which door you prefer. They’ll be left just outside that door. Please label your flowers with your name.

Jean Snipes will be coordinating our flower calendar and may be contacted with further questions at flowers@uucs.org.
