Prayer Walk and Passion Play For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. (John 3:16) Holy Week is going to involve an unusual opportunity for people from Floresville this year. A number of churches have been working together on a Good Friday Prayer Walk and Passion Play. People are invited to gather 11:30 AM on Good Friday, April 14 at the Wilson County Court House. At noon, walkers will be invited to begin a journey through the streets of Floresville as we remember the Passion of Christ. The walking begins at 3rd & C Streets, continues along 3rd Street and ends at Railroad Street. The walk culminates with a Passion Play re-enacting the events of Good Friday. The actors in the play will be comprised of youth from Floresville churches. The Prayer Walk is just one of the events that Floresville churches are doing together in 2017, remembering the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.

OWLS and OTHER CAVITY NESTORS
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Discover the world of cavity nesters; why it matters to us and how we can make it better. Some 85 species of North American birds excavate nesting holes, use cavities resulting from decay (natural cavities), or use holes created by other species in dead or deteriorating trees. Many species of cavity-nesting birds have declined because of habitat reduction. The Wilson County Wildlife Association is sponsoring a public education event on this topic on April 29, 2017. The event is free to the public and a light brunch will be served. The speaker is Jamie Killian who is the TPWD Wildlife Biologist for Wilson and Karnes Counties.
