Nativity Sustainability/Environment Outreach Team – Front Entry Plan


Nativity Garden Vision
Our vision for Nativity front entry: We see a front entry experience that is welcoming, safe, and easily accessible to everyone; where nature spills into the street creating a lovely backdrop for people to celebrate, gather, linger, play, laugh and sit while enjoying nature in each season; with inspiring and interactive lighting and artistic features in a space that reflects a noticeable and dynamic presence that stewards God’s creation and embodies our commitment to love courageously.
