Flowers Needed for Easter Sunday Procession and Cross

During the season of Lent, the trunk of our Christmas tree is formed into a cross. On Easter morning, members are encouraged to bring cut flowers and greenery to decorate our cross, transforming it from a drab, dark symbol of Christ’s death to a glorious, joyful symbol of His Resurrection. You are also encouraged to bring in small flowering plants that the children can carry as they process in during the opening hymn. They will leave their plants around the altar. 6” flowering plants can be left on the table in the Narthex on Saturday or Sunday morning. The plants will be used again at the 11:00 service. There can be no more uplifting image of God’s grace in Jesus than the image of a precious child of God, face rapt and eyes shining with joy, placing a beautiful flower at the foot of the altar.
