The Columbarium at First United Methodist Church provides a special place to care for, and minister to its members and their families after death. This peaceful, garden-like setting contains niches where the cremains of loved ones may be placed. The niches are available to our members and their families.
What is a Columbarium?
Simply described, it is a wall of niches for urns that contain the cremated ashes of loved ones. The reservation of niches, like the reservation of cemetery plots, makes the Columbarium self-perpetuating and permanently maintained.
There are 122 Columbarium niches in our garden. Each niche will hold one cremation urn. The reservation price of each niche is $3,000. The price includes the engraving of names and dates of birth and death for each person. There is no additional charge for opening and closing the niches. The urn is supplied by the funeral home in charge of the cremation and is a separate expense incurred by the family.
For more information or a tour of our Columbarium, please contact Dona Mullaney.
You may honor or memorialize a friend or loved one on our Tree on Life on display in the Fellowship Hall. The purchase of an engraved leaf, acorn or rock will help support the ministries of FUMC and our mission to make disciples for Jesus Christ.
