Altar Flower Sign-Up | Bethlehem United Church of Christ

Altar Flower Sign-Up

For Sunday worship, we hope to include a live flower/plant arrangement on the altar to represent God's living word among us. Anyone is welcomed to sign-up for a weekend to celebrate a special occasion, honor a person, or to simply contribute to worship in this way. We partner with a local florist who will make the delivery to the church.

Please read the following information carefully.

  • The cost is $40 for two vases, $35 for a centerpiece, and $75 for all three. 


  • The weekly donor information is included in Emily's Edition and the order of worship. Here are some examples of wording: "The flowers on the altar are given by ________ in thanksgiving for their family, friends, and Bethlehem UCC."  "The flowers on the altar are given by ________in memory of _________."


  • The dates are first come first serve, so reserve early. For 2024 dates, click HERE. In the comment section, be sure to include the exact wording to appear in Emily's Edition and the weekly order of worship. **Double check your spelling/information on the submission.  Please indicate if you would like two vases, a centerpiece, or all three, and if you will be taking the flowers home or if they can be delivered to someone in the church family in need of a pick-me-up.   


  • Hard copies of the order form are available outside the church office. 


  • Please make checks payable to Bethlehem UCC and indicate "altar flowers" in the memo line. Checks/cash can be dropped at the church office, in the secured mailbox in the vestibule (church office entrance), or in the offering plate.  


  • Due to the ordering and the florist's hours at IGA, we need to have donations signed-up at least one week before the Sunday they are requesting.  Flowers are to be paid in full prior to the Sunday they're ordered, or the order will not be submitted to the florists.
