First Presbyterian Allen

Welcome to the Community Labyrinth Garden of FPCA!

 

In the open area between the Church and Greenville Avenue, the beginnings of the Labyrinth Garden are starting to take shape. The project was conceived as a way to make use of the open area as well as create an opportunity for community involvement with a purpose.

When completed (projected Fall of 2017), one can make their way through the labyrinth and stop at designated gardens that correspond to the Scriptural path Jesus made on His way to the cross.

Families, civic organizations, and church members can work collectively to plant areas of the garden, with the following plant guidelines: Texas Native or Adapted Native for Zone 7 or lower, full sun and drought tolerant and alkaline/clay soil friendly. For more information or to adopt a garden, contact the Church Office at office@fpcallen.org or 972-727-2551.

The labyrinth is a gift from FPCA to our friends and family in Allen and the surrounding communities.  We hope you will make use of it often and that you will tell your friends about it.  The only restriction we place on its use is that it is for humans only.
