Prayer Garden & Columbarium

Home / Quicklinks / Prayer Garden & Columbarium

Symbols are a part of the fabric of our Christian life. For example, the ancient Hebrews built altars and piled memorial stones together. These would commemorate important spiritual events or God-encounters. Christians embrace baptism and communion as rich symbols of faith. 

Also, here at Fellowship, we have established the Fellowship "Prayer Garden". This is a dedicated place for prayer and thoughtful reflection. It symbolizes our belief in our utter dependency upon God's empowering presence. It challenges us to seek God's perspective for life. 

Prayer Garden 

Where is it located?
West of "The Lodge" at the northwest corner of our property. See the campus mat for more detail directions. 

When is it available (open)? 
Every day during daylight hours. Feel free to come, to rest, to meditate on the greatness of our God and His purposes for our lives. 

Will it be expanded (enlarged)? 
Yes. Through the years, the Prayer Garden will be completed within its assigned area. More paths, plants, trees, flowers and shrubs will be added. In the future, a Prayer Cottage will also be included as a part of the Prayer Garden. 

Columbarium

What is a Columbarium? 
A Columbarium is a structure with recessed niches for storing cremated remains. 

Where is it located? 
Within the Prayer Garden. The structures are tastefully interspersed within the Garden.

Why have a Columbarium? 
Modern and urban churches (unlike the rural, country churches of the past) do not have space available for cemeteries. Columbaria provide for interested parties a respectful resting place for cinerary urns. 

What is Fellowship's position on "cremation"? 
Fellowship does not promote an official church position. We encourage individual believers to search the Scriptures and develop their own biblical convictions in this matter.
