"The Lord is God, and he has given us light. Bind the festal procession with branches, up to the horns of the altar." Psalm 118:27
The Flower Guild's mission is to beautify our parish by arranging and caring for the flowers, plants and floral decorations. The members of the Flower Guild offer their dedication and creativity to the beauty of the worship at Christ & Saint Stephen’s by arranging flowers for Sunday services – and by decorating the church for Easter and Christmas.
During most of the year, Flower Guild members arrange flowers in our antique Victorian brass vases for Sunday services.
Classes in flower arranging for new Guild members are held throughout the year.
Flower Guild members pull out all the stops on Easter and Christmas when our church is filled with greenery, lilies and other beautiful flowers. These special feast days require many hands – for those with busy schedules, being a twice yearly Flower Guild member might be just right. Please consider helping make our worship beautiful by joining the CSS Flower Guild.

Flower Dedications at CSS
Providing flowers for our Sunday worship is a way to remember a loved one, give thanks or honor someone important in your life.
Donations for flowers may be made for any Sunday except for the Sundays in Lent, Christmas services or Easter Day.
To secure a particular Sunday for your flower dedication, sign up on the "Flower Donation Sign-Up Sheet" located in the Undercroft.
The standard donation for a flower dedication is $45. Please send your check to the parish office (attention: Ellen) two weeks prior to the selected date and include the dedication information.
