“Remembering Our Past, Celebrating Our Present, Building Our Future”

Campaign goals:

  1. Building restoration
    1. Bell tower
    2. Upgrade facilities (external/internal paint, A/V, lighting, etc)
    3. Maintain grounds
    4. Mortgage reduction
As part of our restoration campaign, “Remembering Our Past, Celebrating Our Present, Building Our Future”, we are creating a memorial/honor garden between our main buildings. Mark your permanent place in our history and purchase an engraved brick, in memoriam or honor for a loved one or in special recognition of a family member or friend.
 
There will be two distinct opportunities in the Hereford Community Garden. Our memorial cross and honor wall permits both dedications and celebrations of people past and present in our lives. A permanent display to reflect on in a beautiful garden setting, central to our Hereford community.

Samples of the engraver bricks and tiles are available for your viewing on a table at the back of the church along with a pamphlet about the program and order forms.

The Beautiful Garden of Prayer

Eleanor A. Schroll

There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
There’s a place that is wondrously fair;
For it glows with the light of His presence,

’Tis that beautiful garden of prayer.

Oh, the beautiful garden, the garden of prayer,
Oh, the beautiful garden of prayer;
There my Savior awaits, and He opens the gates

To the beautiful garden of prayer.

There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
And I go with my burden and care
Just to learn from His lips words of comfort,

In the beautiful garden of prayer.

There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
And He bids you to come meet Him there;
Just to bow, and receive a new blessing,

In the beautiful garden of prayer.
