Located just north of the Knoles building, surrounded by stately redwood trees and colorful maples, our Columbarium and Memorial Garden is designed for reflection and meditation.
This consecrated environment serves as an alternative to a traditional burial plot or mausoleum. Many may gain comfort in finding a final resting place on the grounds of their church home.
This ministry of Central provides a peaceful place for people to remember and celebrate the lives of their loved ones and those whose ashes have been placed here.
The Columbarium is a wall of niches, each capable of holding two urns containing cremated remains
The Memorial Walls commemorate those buried elsewhere
