The Garden at Grace
This ambitious project is designed to offer you a place of refuge, a place where you can be renewed in your faith and find peace through the sacred surrounds of God’s creation!
Grace as a Resting Place
“I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live”.
For those in Christ, our journey in this life will culminate on the day of our passing, when we believe we shall be resurrected into everlasting life in the kingdom of God as he promised. For centuries, churches have provided a final resting place for its members where they can be honored and remembered. So it is fitting that the Garden at Grace Church provide such a resting place.
Contained within the garden wall are niches which are designed to house urns containing the cremated remains of the deceased. Called a columbarium, meaning "dwelling place of the dove", these niches symbolize the presence of the Holy Spirit, by whose power we are raised on the last day. The columbarium provides a permanent place of remembrance for those in the community.
The Garden at Grace will be perpetually maintained to give glory to God and respect to those who lie in rest.
Please contact the church office for more information, or if you would like to purchase a niche for yourself or a loved one.
