Memorial Garden/Columbarium Project

The vision of Monte Sano UMC is to celebrate healing light of Christ in our community.  This vision extends from birth through death.  As such, we have initiated a project to create a final resting place for our Monte Sano brothers and sisters on our beautiful church property. 

This space will consist of a memorial garden for cremains scattering and columbarium for inurnment.  The garden and columbarium have been designed to complement our beautiful building architecture and grounds. 40 niches with granite facing stones are available for inurnment, and 40 granite memorial wall plaques are available for memorializing loved ones whose cremains are scattered in the memorial garden or laid to rest elsewhere.  Each niche can accommodate the cremains of up to two individuals, and wall plaques can memorialize up to two individuals

If you’re interested in purchasing a niche or memorial plaque, Monte Sano UMC is currently accepting applications and pre-construction payments.  A 10% pre-construction discount is being offered through 12/31/16.  Please review the columbarium information briefing, policy and application for purchase.  Return the completed application and full payment to the MSUMC office as soon as possible.  Once the 40 niches and plaques are sold, the first phase of the project will be closed for purchase.
