Columbarium Memorial Garden
Sited next to our Biblical Garden on the west side of campus, our Columbarium Memorial
Garden is a secluded place. Shaded by trees and filled with the sounds of nature, it is

The Columbarium provides niches for a final resting place of the cremated remains of the
deceased. Names of loved ones can also be inscribed on marble spires in the Memorial Garden. Make
arrangements by calling the church office at 602-840-8360.
