Hope Memorial Garden & Columbarium

church columbariumThe Hope Memorial Garden & Columbarium Committee is developing a plan that will soon be finalized and submitted to Session. The expectation is to offer the opportunity to purchase a niche that will accommodate two urns within a low walled, nicely landscaped area, with a hardscaped garden setting that may be used for many outdoor purposes. Our research included reviewing many completed facilities and interviewing some with experience in the building of the facilities. We are confident that a Columbarium can be developed to fit our needs on the new campus.

The brochure covers some of these concepts that will be utilized. We also anticipate providing respectful, uniform memorial plaques available for purchase for those interred elsewhere yet wishing to be memorialized within the garden at New Hope. The Committee believes that this Memorial Garden will be tastefully completed in keeping with our character and demeanor. Additionally, we believe the Garden will enhance an area of our site where many will pass through on their way to and from church. Final pricing has not been determined, but we anticipate a double niche will be around $2,500 and a bronze memorial plaque under $300. Download a copy of the brochure HERE.

If you have any questions, please email any of the Committee members listed below. Thank you for your assistance in this project, which we believe has the capability of enhancing the Christian worship experience at New Hope for many years to come.
