Sponsoring Flowers Under the Cross


Flower Calendar Sign-up process and options

Floral arrangements placed under the cross on Sunday are a reflection of worship at REPC.  You are invited to join us in this ministry of worship through your donation and dedication of a floral arrangement.  

  • Option #1:  The church has an account with Leo Wood Florist.   To use this option, please sign up on the Flower Calendar located in the hallway next to the library and contact Leo Wood to discuss your arrangement with them.  (434) 845-2309.  Leo Wood offers a suitable cross arrangement in your chosen color palette with delivery for approximately $125.  Please contact Leo Wood directly to discuss your needs and preferences which may adjust the pricing up or down.  To defray costs, arrangements can be made in a disposable plastic container which the Flower Guild can place in a decorative urn under the cross.   Please contact the church receptionist regarding your arrangement and the dedication wording you wish to have in the bulletin.  The church will bill you for the cost of the arrangement. 

  • Option #2: You may provide an arrangement using a florist of your choosing.  Please contact the church office to discuss your wishes with them, as well as the dedication wording you wish to have in the bulletin.  You will also need to check the Flower Calendar to confirm date availability.

  • Option # 3 Sponsorship of Festival Sunday Arrangements: In accordance with the Liturgical calendar  REPC observes seven traditional church festivals throughout the year— the first Sunday of Advent, Epiphany, Palm Sunday, Easter Sunday, Trinity Sunday, Pentecost Sunday, and Reformation Sunday.  The cross arrangements on these days are generally more elaborate and feature specific traditional festival colors.  Arrangements are often created by our own Flower Guild, or can be provided through a local florist.  Due to the more elaborate nature of these arrangements, sponsorship of one of these arrangements may be made in total or in part, and multiple individuals may contribute to an arrangement.  Each sponsorship dedication will be acknowledged in the bulletin on the corresponding Sunday.  Please note, during the winter quiet season, we welcome floral sponsorship of a more subdued arrangement.  Please call the church office to discuss any of these sponsorship options.

    • Option # 4 Christmas and Easter floral memorials & dedications: The REPC Flower Guild provides arrangements under the cross for Sunday worship on a weekly basis when no floral dedication has been made.  The Flower Guild also decorates the church for Christmas and Easter.  To share in this ministry, donations can be made to the Flower Guild, and also through participation in the Christmas and Easter floral memorial & dedication floral fund.  Funds received through Christmas and Easter memorials & dedications are used to create floral arrangements throughout the church for the designated Christmas or Easter donation.  Memorials and dedications are printed in the Christmas Eve or Easter Sunday bulletin. Please call the church office to discuss the details with them.  Information on floral donations for Christmas and Easter floral memorials & dedications will also be available through bulletin inserts, The Cupola online and in print, and the Rivermont.org website.
