Mt. Zion Prayer Garden History
In July of 2004, work began on creating a Prayer Garden behind our former parsonage beside our church. A site was selected near two towering trees that survived the Mt. Zion UMC fire of 1976 - a graceful white oak and a stately tulip poplar.
Plans were to create an area to pause and appreciate the beauty of creation and to thank God for His blessings. A quiet place to reflect, pray, and listen like Elijah, for His "... still small voice." 1 Kings 19: 12
Drop by to pray, reflect, or to read your Bible. You are also invited to leave a prayer, praise or other comment in our journal inside our Bible book box. For special photo opportunities, please contact the church so that the garden may look it's best that day. Volunteers are always appreciated to help with maintenance of flower beds and the fountain.
Special inscribed bricks in memory of or in honor of loved ones, organizations or events surround the fountain. New bricks with your choice of inscriptions may be ordered by contacting us through the church office. All proceeds help to pay our mortgage.
