Memorial Garden and Pathway


We know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. ~ II Corinthians 5:1

The Memorial Garden is a place of quiet beauty and peace, where family and friends may scatter the remains of their loved ones with dignity and respect. It was dedicated on October 31, 1999 (All Saints' Sunday) as an outreach ministry of the Diaconate of United Community Church.

Those wishing to use the Memorial Garden may make arrangements by visiting or calling the church office. At that time, the policy and procedure for using the Memorial Garden will be explained. A modest donation is suggested to cover expenses. However, no one will be refused use of the Memorial Garden because of financial limitations.

The Memorial Pathway that leads to the Memorial Garden is made of paver bricks that have been engraved with the names and dates of deceased loved ones. Family and friends may choose this option for remembering their loved one at the same time they make arrangements for the scattering of ashes.

Paver bricks may also be purchased for placement in the Memorial Pathway in remembrance of loved ones whose ashes have been scattered or who have been interred elsewhere. Bricks may be purchased through the church office.

All those whose ashes have been scattered in the Memorial Garden or whose names are engraved on paver bricks forming the Memorial Pathway will be recorded in a Book of Remembrance to be kept on display in the church narthex.
