American Heritage Girls and their families
National Day of Service September 2021
Canton First UMC Chartered American Heritage Girls designated the Prayer Garden for their annual “Day of Service” project. The girls and their families served by weeding, thinning out and moving flowers, planting roses, removing volunteer tree growth, trimming bushes, filling in dirt, and mulching the Garden.
The Prayer Garden is designed for experiencing God through prayer and reflection in a quiet place of peace and tranquility, close to the elements of nature in the beauty of His Garden.
Canton First UMC Rooted Spiritual Growth Group also helped by financially sponsoring the project.
Thank you American Heritage Girls and Rooted for sharing your gifts For Others!
