Columbarium and Memorial Garden
First Lutheran Church maintains a Columbarium and Memorial Garden in the courtyard off the Commons.
Why a Columbarium?
Cemeteries have long been part of church properties over the course of the years, providing dedicated Christian burial grounds for members of the congregation. In recent years, cremations have become more common. Thus, we simply continue a practice of ages past.
Who may be inurned in the First Lutheran Columbarium?
Current members of First Lutheran Church, a member's child before baptism and former members of First Lutheran Church (at the discretion of the Columbarium Board) may be inurned in the Columbarium.
Christian Inurnment worship services will be conducted under the supervision of a pastor from First Lutheran Church.
Book of Remembrance
Each niche will accommodate the remains of one person.
The full name of the deceased, with the dates of birth and death, will be engraved on the face plate of each niche.
