Crossroads Community Church Prayer Garden
Prayer is essential to whatever success our congregation enjoys by the hand of God. When first planning for the use of the land at Gahagan, we set aside the front portion for prayer and meditation. A focal point of the area was to be a prayer garden, integrated someday with a prayer chapel.
This prayer garden has been under development since 1996 and has slowly matured. Hedges and arbors along the paths enclose five distinct “rooms,” each landscaped to suggest a beloved psalm and invite individual and small group prayer.
Building and keeping the prayer garden is a ministry of the church. Working in the garden on a quiet morning or in the late afternoon is a relaxing and rewarding way to serve. There is always a need for gardeners.
