Something truly special is being created here on the church campus. We are transforming an abandoned roadway corridor into a unique nature, prayer and education space for adults and children.

At the center of the Nature Area & Prayer Gardens is a large outdoor classroom for the preschool students of North Star Learning Center (NSLC), a ministry of Canyon Creek. Learn more about the NSLC.

On each end of the classroom, we are working to create a park-like setting with walking trails, prayer and meditation spaces, rest and contemplation areas with seating, and other special features.

Master Vision Plan

The Nature Area & Prayer Gardens master vision plan shows what the space could become over time:

Park atmosphere with trails, benches, and arbors • Prayer walk • Stations of the cross
Prayer and meditation spaces • Labyrinth • Memorial garden
Sitting areas • Shaded meeting places • Native plants and trees
Songbird, butterfly, hummingbird, and bee habitat • Art features • More …

Butterfly Garden

One element of the Nature Area & Prayer Gardens is a ±150-sq.ft. butterfly garden located in the grassed area near the south end of the main parking lot.

Made possible by a grant from the Native Plant Society of Texas, the garden features native milkweed plants — the only plant on which Monarch butterflies will lay their eggs — and other native pollinator and shelter plants.  
If you would like to help develop or maintain the butterfly garden, please contact Craig Conditt.  

How You Can Help

Developing the Nature Area & Prayer Gardens is a grass-roots project that needs volunteers’ time and ideas as well as money donations. Church members, Scout troops, friends of the church, and community members are invited to help with the range of planning, installation and upkeep tasks that will be needed to make the Nature Area & Prayer Gardens a reality.
