In 1997, our church established a Columbarium (Memorial Garden) as a new ministry for members. The area, located behind the church, provides a special place for the internment or scattering of ashes of church members and their immediate families. The garden also provides a memorial wall for which church members may purchase a plaque to honor a deceased family member or friend. Niches or memorial plaques may be purchased  through the Columbarium (Memorial Garden) Committee. 

Columbarium (Memorial Garden)

Our church offers numerous clubs and groups designed for fellowship, as well as community outreach and physical, mental and spiritual wellness.
