Final Resting Places
As you consider plans for your own and your loved ones final resting place, our church has several options available to you. The church has traditionally been the natural repository and final resting place of deceased members of the Christian community. Burial within a church or in an adjacent churchyard was once common practice. The amount of land necessary for a burial ground is no longer available to most churches. In recent years, cremation with inurnment of the ashes, rather than burial, has become more common. In this way, the remains of the deceased can stay on at the church that played such an important part in their lives.
If you choose to have your body cremated, you may have your cremains placed in an urn in the church columbarium. Another choice is to have your cremains returned to the earth in the scattering garden located within our columbarium garden. A niche in the columbarium is reasonably priced and aesthetically pleasing. The ambiance of the columbarium creates a comfortable meeting place for families and friends to gather in love and remembrance.

If you opt for burial, the church has several internment spaces in the Garden of Everlasting Life in the Tyler Mountain Memory Gardens. Also available are two family companion crypts in the WV Memorial Mausoleum also located in the Tyler Mountain Memory Garden. If you would like more information about any of these planning options, please contact the church business office.
