Take a few minutes this summer to enjoy the new prayer garden at Trinity Baptist Church.
Located on the front lawn of the campus, the garden includes a variety of flowers, shrubs, and trees. It also includes a water feature, sitting areas, and a small table for families interested in spending time in prayer or reflection. The path allows for pilgrims to pray their way through the various settings.
As a way to promote the garden, we are also inviting artists and photographers to use the prayer garden as a subject for artwork. We hope to have an art show at the end of the summer highlighting various pieces that have the garden as the focus.
For more information for art and photography, or to get time in our new art studio, please email us at email@example.com
- Prayer Garden is open from sunrise to sunset.
- The art studio is open on Wednesdays from 2 PM to 6 PM.

The World’s A Mess
by Martha brown
The world’s a mess,
Yet today I saw a lone star in the beginning night sky.
Yes, the world’s a mess,
But yesterday I saw a part of a rainbow and it had not rained.
The world is surely a mess,
But on Sunday I will go to Trinity and be among friends.
At the entrance four spires point upward toward the heavens
And as I step through the doors I anticipate worship.
I’ll enjoy the music, and the excitement of the children,
Be inspired by the words of scripture and the sermon.
I’ll be enveloped in Deborah’s and Glenda’s warm hugs
Go on a sugar high with chocolate from Ray’s candy box,
I’ll be thankful that Tom and I have an offering to contribute
And that I have a place saved for me by a dear friend.
After the service Pastor Joe promises a home visit.
The world’s a mess but on Sunday I’ve experienced
The love of God in Christian fellowship.
He’s still in control as evidenced by nature, reaffirmed by community
And bolstered by modern disciples of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Praise God for His wonderful grace.
