Bring fresh flowers for the Easter cross
April 2 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until April 3, 2021
As we near Easter morning, you are invited to bring flowers from home to put in a bucket of water near the Easter cross (any time from Good Friday, April 2nd until 4PM on Holy Saturday, April 3). Our Sacraments and Chancel ministry will affix the flowers to fill the cross as our expression of love fulfilled on Easter morning.
Community UCC has long had a tradition of decorating an Easter cross with flowers from our yards. The cross comes to life on Easter Sunday with our collection of blossoms. This year, this long and strange year, we hold a hope of vaccination against COVID-19 along with our hopes for Christ’s message of love to come fully into the world. The journey through Lent to Easter’s message takes on new shades of meaning. We will display our cross for the entire season, from Ash Wednesday to Easter. It will start out as a bare cross, displayed in the courtyard on Ash Wednesday, February 17. During Lent, those who are vaccinated are invited to tie a purple ribbon on the cross.
This opportunity for gratitude and delight is open to anyone in the community. The grounds are open from 8am to 5pm.
