Prayer Garden Earns Gold Award

Kate, a senior at Southside High School and member of Troop 620, recently earned her Girl Scout Gold Award for her Prayer Garden project at Christ Center Church in Rainbow City.

Prior to completing her project, Kate’s church did not have an outdoor area for people to reflect or spend time in prayer. A landscapist for a local golf course helped Kate draw up the plans for the garden and helped her pick out appropriate plants and flowers. To make sure she didn’t hit utility lines when she started digging holes, Kate contacted Call Before You Dig to mark the lines. With the help of some church volunteers, Kate made some concrete benches and a giant concrete cross that now sits in the middle of the garden. People have already used the garden for Sunday School classes, small groups and communion on Palm Sunday.

Kate is a native of Rainbow City.
