Neighborhood Peace Garden
In 2007 the Rainier Beach Neighborhood Peace Garden held its opening ceremonies with live music, food, and art activities. The purpose of the lovely garden, funded by a generous grant from the Valparaiso Practice Project, is to encourage the practice of hospitality in our community. Since its opening we have held Prayer Walks, Peace Walks, baptism services, and many informal events and meetings in the Peace Garden. Most of all, we hope the Peace Garden symbolizes for our community the love of God for a broken world, and brings hope.
