Altar Flowers

Each weekend, colorful floral arrangements adorn the altar. Such floral beauty praises the life and resurrection Jesus has so freely given us. It honors loved ones and gives thanks for special people and events in our lives. With your generosity, worship at RLC truly reflects our praise for the living word of God as well as remembers or honors a loved one or a special moment in your life.

One way to celebrate your loved ones throughout the year is by contributing to the altar flowers. It is a great way to celebrate a special person or event, in memory of a loved one who has passed away, or other special days of remembrances with your family of faith. Suggested days to recognize and celebrate:

  • Anniversaries
  • Confirmations
  • Baptisms
  • In memory of a loved one
  • Thankfulness for a person or event
  • Graduations
  • Sweet Sixteen
  • Passing Driver’s License Exam
  • Birthdays

  • First Date
  • Graduation from Basic Training
  • First Communion

The Chancel Fund pays for the flowers on the altar each weekend and your gift is tax-deductible. Gifts given for a particular weekend are recognized in that weekend’s worship folder.

Celebrating is easy. Reserve a date(s) for your loved one to be recognized by filling out this online form, or contacting the church office. The minimum contribution is $25 per weekend reserved. Dates are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
