Prayer Room

Girl Scout Project: Prayer Room

THANK YOU to Girl Scouts Addison Coughlin, Maddie Billings and Sophie McKinney for giving the College Park Church Prayer Room a big makeover as their Silver Project. The room was dedicated on September 10, 2017.

Prayer Room

The small room on the third floor has been transformed into a meditative spot. Pray below the wooden cross or post prayer requests on the board. Or meditate in the light-filled room.

Here’s a recap of their amazing work:

  • Removed the existing carpet and installed laminate hardwood floors (with the help of parents and siblings)
  • Sanded and painted the walls “Mindful Grey”
  • Sanded and repainted the ceiling
  • Patched and painted holes in molding
  • Installed a large cross on the wall when you first come into the room
  • Cleaned the windows and installed curtain rods and curtains
  • Installed a cork board wall for people to post prayer requests
  • Refurbished an existing pink bookshelf by sanding and painting it white
  • Installed ceramic crosses on another wall
  • Purchased three succulants for each window
  • Repurposed some existing furniture for a sitting area
  • Asked a local artist to create a word art poster for the room and had it framed and hung
  • Placed prayer bench(es) created by Bill Ingold from reclaimed wood from the chapel pews.
