For the past 50 years, we have gathered to celebrate the lives of those who have been laid to rest. For many of those years, the church has provided a place for their cremains in our Memorial Garden. The cremains of about 90 members and loved ones are buried along the wall by the walkway alongside the administration wing. Countless others have been scattered around the cross. Names of loved ones, both those in the Garden and not, have been engraved on the cross and on panels by the walkway. 

Over the years, there have been many contributions to the Memorial Garden, usually in memory of a departed loved one. As part of our 50/50 Celebration, those contributions will be added to others to create a new and expanded Memorial Garden.

Everything currently in the Garden will remain in the new Memorial Garden. In addition, there will be beautiful landscaping, walkways, a gazebo for reflection and shade, and a columbarium – a new structure specifically intended as a final resting place for cremains. 

The Garden will also provide a new way to remember or honor loved ones. The walkways will be made of paver bricks. Among those bricks will be special 8” x 8” pavers available for custom engraved messages. This is a place to permanently remember your loved ones who have passed and to honor those who are alive. It is also a place to present any appropriate message that you wish to permanently share. 

Besides providing a place to honor and remember, the sale of 250 engraved pavers will assure that we have the finances to build our new Memorial Garden. 

Your message can have up to 20 characters per line and up to six lines. The engraved pavers are $100 each. Payment can be made by credit card or you can drop off a check at the church. 

If you would like to have a remembrance of your gift, a 4” x 4” black granite tile with the same engraving can be purchased for $10.
