Outdoor Spaces Ministry Team

If you love gardening, walking trails and/or are a nature lover... we would love to have you become a member of the Outside Spaces Ministry Team.


We have been blessed with 7 acres of church

property that is currently being appreciated by the local deer & wildlife but not really being accessible to the community.


The team is taking a look at how we can become a respite for

those who may need a quiet place for spiritual, mental, or physical

healing.  Some place to walk, sit & contemplate, meet with others, work

with your hands...


Landscape drawings, garden concepts, trail concepts and planting

selections are bing reviewed.

The team is hoping to get at least one outside project started. In order for this to happen, we need to review the two design landscape proposals we received in 2015 and put together a comprehensive design plan for the property. We also need to meet and work with Chalfont Borough officials for approval of these plans.
