“…I go to prepare a place for you.” –John 14:2
The Chapel Garden was built and dedicated as part of the church’s 75th Anniversary celebration in 1986. Here, ashes from a cremation could be placed close to the church where baptisms, marriages, Christian fellowship and religious renewal have occurred—significant events deeply etched into the panorama of each life. Here, also, memorial plaques for those buried elsewhere could be placed to recall their devotion to this church.
The Garden is a place cherished for its beauty and quiet solitude. A place for reverence and remembrance, with flowering trees, plantings, and the soothing sounds from the fountain. The Garden was expanded in 2013 to include over 80 new spaces. Each space has room for the burial of two urns.
An increased number of Christian families are choosing to spread the ashes of their departed loved ones in a special, sacred space. With the establishment of the Scattering Garden, fpcw members can choose this method of interment as a literal fulfillment of the words used in many funerals: “Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust.”
