Garden Center Visit For November

Scene from Garden Center Visit For November.

Fr. Paul started our visit with the story of Solomon. Solomon, son of King David, built with the blessing of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord in Jerusalem. This is where the Ark of the Covenant was placed in the Holy of Holies.

Scene from Garden Center Visit For November.

Fr. Paul told us how Solomon was the one King who had the most glory. But simple things of the earth that God has made are more beautiful and we should trust God.

In an effort to improve our building and grounds we continue to make improvements. Recently we added railings on the stairs by the glass doors.

The old lights by the main doors were replaced with new fixtures that match the existing pole lamps.
