  • Guild of the Flowering Cross

    Want to join one of the most creative and fulfilling ministries at St. John's? The Guild of the Flowering Cross(GFC) is welcoming new members! No arranging experience needed, just a love of flowers and the desire to create beautiful things. Our team is enthusiastic, supportive and committed to enhancing St. John's worship experience through the beauty of God’s nature. Please contact co-chairs Laura Williams at and Mary Dallas Moore at to find out how to become a part of this important and meaningful ministry.

    Almost every week, the talented and creative members of the Guild of the Flowering Cross bring the beauty of God’s world to our sanctuary. On their scheduled week, the guild members are responsible for picking up flowers from our florist, Cricket Newman Designs, and arranging altar flowers on Saturday mornings for Sunday's worship services. At Easter and Christmas, all members of the guild join together and decorate the church and grounds.

    Applicants can be male or female, young or old!

    The application can be found online here.

  • Altar Flower Donations

    The Guild of the Flowering Cross invites all parishioners to sponsor altar flowers for any given Sunday throughout the year (even during Lent and Advent when greenery is used, you may still sponsor flowers and it will be acknowledged in the Sunday bulletin). Sponsoring altar flowers is a beautiful way to honor loved ones marking special life events such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries, baptisms, confirmations, in memory of a loved one, or in thanksgiving for life's blessings. More than one person may make a gift on a particular Sunday. Names of those honored will be printed in the bulletin announcements and included in the weekly, online e-pistle for the week they are given. The cost for sponsoring altar flowers begins at $50 per individual/family. The actual cost to prepare and arrange flowers each week at our florist is $115.

    Donations can be made online at our Giving Page or by calling the parish office at 799.4767.
