The Columbarium was installed in late November, 2020. It is made of granite and limestone.  There are 100 Niches, 50 in front and 50 in back.  The committee worked with a landscaper to install landscaping and pavers.  Jane Horn is working with a company to plant the Memorial Garden that will surround the structure.  The funding for the garden, which will be planted in the spring of 2022, is from a Memorial given by the Vanatta family.

This will be a sacred resting place on our church grounds for family and friends to come and meditate, to remember loved ones, and to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.
