"Engaging Your Spirit Without Disconnecting Your Mind"
We invite you to spend some time in our Community Prayer Garden, located on 14th Street across the alley from our Fellowship Hall. The Community Prayer Garden was created in June 2010 as part of our 125th anniversary Miracle Day. It is open to people of all faiths (or none) as a place of meditation and prayer. As part of the Garden's creation, a ramp was constructed to make it wheelchair accessible.
The Garden features an altar, benches, and a fountain (seasonally) in the midst of lush greenery. We ask that you respect the Garden as a place of prayer. Please do not leave trash behind.
We would love to hear about your visit in the Garden! Please visit our Guest Book to give us feedback.
In October of 2011, a Peace Pole was installed in the Community Prayer Garden. Visible from the street and the alley, the Peace Pole lifts up the prayer, "May peace prevail on Earth," in English, Spanish, Hebrew, and Arabic. Our Peace Pole is one of over 200,000 around the world sharing this prayer. For more information about it, visit www.peacepoles.com.
"O sing to the Lord a new song:
sing to the Lord all the earth....
Let the heavens be glad,
let the earth rejoice;
let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult and everything in it."
~Psalm 96: 1, 11
"Come find your place at Christ's Table!"
