Prayer Garden Progress
Work was begun in the 4th quarter last year and completed in January on the Prayer Garden project. The “hardscape” , which includes the prayer labyrinth and connecting walkways, is in place, and new fescue sod has been placed between the hardscape and the street sidewalk. Two Camellia shrubs have been planted on either end of the area that is designated for our Memorial Garden, and one boxwood shrub has been moved adjacent to our church sign. Additionally, lighting to enhance the appearance of our church building and the Prayer Garden is to be installed within the next two weeks, weather permitting. When that work is complete, our committee will continue the work on Phase 1 of the project by purchasing and installing benches for seating at the corners of the prayer labyrinth, fencing for enclosing the Memorial Garden, and bronze plaques to be used to memorialize individuals whose cremains are interred within. While this work is underway, our Pastor is preparing plans on leading our congregation in the use of this new part of our church facility.
Following the completion of Phase 1 work, the Prayer Garden committee will continue to work to define further landscaping needs, a perimeter fence with gate, and the costs for those items, and securing funding for same.
We give thanks for the safe and successful work that has been completed to date, and for the faithful prayers and financial gifts of our church membership, and ask for your continued support as we move ahead with the further work to be done.
