The Meditation Garden lies between the church building and The House Next Door. It consists of several areas and is accessed from the double doors on the west end of the narthex.
The Memorial Garden
Situated to the left of the sidewalk as you leave the church building, this area provides benches for quiet reflection and a stele with names and birth and death dates of the people whose cremains are interred. For more information, contact email@example.com.
The Butterfly Garden
Installed in 2019, this garden contains nectar plants for adult butterflies and host plants for caterpillars. It is an official Monarch Way Station.
Installed by volunteers in 2016 and modeled on the 11-course Chartres labyrinth, the labyrinth is part of the spiritual formation ministry at Prince of Peace. Members of all faiths and no faith have found walking the labyrinth to be a meaningful experience. It is open to the public every day from dawn to dusk.
The Peace Garden
An active vegetable garden since 2014, the Peace Garden is tended by volunteers. Produce is donated to local food banks. For more information or to volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outdoor Meeting Area
The outdoor meeting area is suitable for campfires, scout meetings, small weddings or other ceremonies, and outdoor worship. It contains a lectern/pulpit and bench seating for about 50 people.
