Mission Lake Prayer Garden
546 State Pond Road,
Directors: Billie Jo & Craig Youmans
Mission Lake's Wilderness Prayer Garden is an amazing and unique work in progress. Although still under construction, a visit here is a must. Come and see the breath-taking sculptures that have been generously donated to this very special, sacred spot overlooking Mission Lake. You may also meet the specially skilled laborers who are faithfully making this vision a reality. The Prayer Garden offers the opportunity to make a deep connections with God through tranquil times of prayer and reflection.
Mission Lake is the result of years of intensive study and collaboration around the challenge of poverty facing the state of South Carolina. It is a community-based response that is not dependent upon unsustainable local, state and federal sources of funding and is designed to be a key component of a sustainable, scalable, respectful, and accountable system for responding to needs.
