A columbarium affords members and their families the opportunity to select their final resting place in the shadow of the church which has been central to their lives – a site of beauty and dignity where their loved ones can visit, pray, and meditate. It eliminates the pressures of choosing a burial site, casket, vault, and monument. By providing a place for interment immediately adjacent to the Sanctuary, the need to travel from the church to a cemetery or other locale is eliminated. In addition, it offers substantial financial savings. The combined cost of a columbarium niche and cremation is typically less than one-fourth the cost of a casket, burial site, and gravestone.
