An abbreviated Zoom worship service will precede this in-person (but masked) adaptation of the flower communion. Learn more about the Zoom-based portion of the Flower Communion Sunday service.
After the Zoom portion of the worship service, we will take a brief break, with folks having the option of staying for a few minutes in our accustomed community time “breakout rooms” for conversation with others on Zoom, or hopping in your car and heading to Heritage! (If you do come to Heritage, remember to bring a fresh flower for our Flower Communion.)
To create safer traffic flow and keep cars from backing up out onto Newtown Road, we ask that as much as possible, those families whose last names begin with the letters A-L arrive at the church parking lot sometime between 11:15 and 11:30, while those with last names beginning with M-Z arrive between 11:30 and 11:45.
- Bring a flower to share.
- You will leave your flower in the traditional HUUC Flower Communion basket, created and popularized by the late Connie Booth.
- See and say hello to others from our Heritage Community (those driving through with you, our musicians, members of our Worship Committee, Rev. Bill and more).
- Experience live music from both Les Tacy and Mimi Sinclair.
- There will be an opportunity to physically contribute a check or cash to our outreach offering recipient for the week, the Civic Garden Center of Cincinnati, where Connie Booth worked for so many years as a Master Gardener.
- As you leave the parking lot, you will receive a different flower from the one you brought (this year, not one of those brought by others that morning).
Everything will be shown live in our Zoom link, thanks to volunteer camerapersons, so that those who cannot or do not wish to leave home can watch.
In the afternoon, at 1:00 p.m., the flowers brought to the Flower Communion will be placed on the grave of Connie Booth at Heritage Acres Memorial Sanctuary. You are invited to a drive through procession in memory of Connie Booth.
