Columbarium/Memorial Garden Update:

Niche and wall plaques sales have begun. Members of the task force will be available after the Saturday and Sunday church services if there are questions, concerns, or you need information on purchasing either niches or plaques.

We would like to have the sidewalk and concrete completed by Spring 2023; but money is needed to complete this project.  A fund has been established for this purpose. Donations to this fund are tax-deductible. The estimated cost for the concrete is $31,000.

The Columbarium and Memorial Wall Committee: Jerry and Kathy Rasmussen, John and Carole Rusch, Bob Badal, Betty Beckman and Pastor Joel Bacon.

First Lutheran Columbarium and Memorial Garden

If you have not made plans for your final resting place, then consider the First Lutheran Columbarium and Memorial Garden.  It will be a place of peace and hope, a reminder that death is not the end for God's people.  First Lutheran is creating a new columbarium and memorial wall to allow the congregation to remember and honor loved ones directly on our church grounds.  It makes your church a continuous focal point of faith.

Making It Possible

Tax deductible contributions are being sought to build the initial sidewalks, concrete pad, landscape and seating for the project.  Target completion is Spring 2023, but money is needed to complete this project.  A fund has been established for this purpose. The estimated cost is $31,000.

The photo is an example of the plaque, it would have names, relationships and dates. 

The Memorial Wall is on the outside wall of the sanctuary and next to the columbarium.   The bronze plaques are designed to honor loved ones who have died and whose remains are elsewhere.
