Empty Cross Attracted 22, 443 Visitors in Sept.

The Empty Cross Sculpture Prayer Garden has been a refuge and blessing for many people in our community, nation and other countries. The Coming King Foundation (TCKF) staff and board members encourage you to visit the 24.5-acre garden. A good time to visit would be during the “Hallelujah” weekend, Oct. 30 and 31, from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. It will be the Open House for the Artists’ Gallery Gift Shop. Max Greiner, Jr. said, “The informal celebration will be in the “Outer Court” of TCKF sculpture prayer garden at the bottom near the TCKF Office at 520 Benson Dr. Please bring your credit card and pick out your Christmas gifts early this year!”

TCKF is a nonprofit 501c3 organization, so donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Your contributions are welcomed.

The Coming King Foundation (TCKF) created a Sculpture Prayer Garden in 2004 in Kerrville. The prayer garden is a vision of artist Max Greiner, Jr., whose works of art are displayed throughout the garden.

Recently, Carla Perry and her daughters Kay and Deborah visited with TCKF President Weldon Baker, the TCKF Executive Director Debbye Meszaros and administrative assistant Roslyn Bell. Meszaros said they are always happy to see visitors. In the past two months, the garden has had a record number of visitors.

“In August, we had 7,171 vehicles, 18,645 visitors, 601 per day visitors. In September, we had 8,632 vehicles, 22,443 visitors, 748 per day visitors,” Meszaros said.

Meszaros also commented on upcoming events and how to get involved.

“For projects, we need some concrete stairs by the ‘Lion of Judah’ and a walking trail for the foot traffic. This would be our next big thing. We would really like to have a local restaurant on the premises, too.”
