The Columbarium was installed in late November. It is made of granite and limestone. There are 100 Niches, 50 in front and 50 in back. The committee is working with a landscaper to develop a plan for landscaping including pavers etc. Jane Horn is working with a company to develop a plan for the Memorial Garden that will surround the structure. The funding for the garden is from a Memorial given by the Vanatta family.
A Niche can hold the cremains of one or two people. The size of each Niche is 8×8”. Cremains are placed in a bronze box within the Columbarium Niche. The outside plate will have the inscribed name(s), date of birth and death of the individual(s). The price of a Niche is $2600.00.
There will be a Memorial Wall placed on the church building between the Nursery door and the Sanctuary door. This will be made out of granite. The price to place the name of a loved one on this wall will be $250.00.
There are Guidelines in place as to who may be placed in a Niche and also on the Memorial Wall.
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.
