The Great Outdoors Community Church Memory Garden
Minimize

The second anniversary of the dedication of Great Outdoors Community Church Memory Garden was observed on Sunday, January 25, 2015. Special refreshments were provided in the Fellowship Hall.

Despite the decided nip in the air, several hardy souls assembled, between services, in the garden to listen to music performed by flautist, Maris Tracy, providing beautiful moments in a beautiful setting.

The event was is in appreciation to all of those who have given their energy, creativity and financial support to fulfill the garden dream. It is also in gratitude for the Lord’s guidance through the development of this project.

The garden is located behind the church structure lying before natural, preserved areas of The Great Outdoors.  All are welcome to enjoy the beauty and serenity of this growing and maturing garden landscape from dawn to dusk.

Family members who wish to honor the living as well as their deceased loved ones may choose to use one or more of the garden's features designed for this.  The garden includes a columbarium for interring cremains and a special garden area for scattering cremains.  A stately gazebo offers seating and shelter for quiet meditation and contemplation before a large wooden cross.  Finally, walkways laid with pavers interconnecting these areas offer locations for engraving words to honor and to remember a family's loved ones. An area for scattering cremains lies beyond the walkways and is home for more flora.
