Why does Living God Lutheran Church have a columbarium?
YA columbarium is a practical, inexpensive, space-efficient way to remember those who have died, restoring a churchyard tradition to permanently house remains of loved ones with dignity and respect.
Niches are priced at $1200 for members of Living God Church and $1400 for non-members. The purchase price includes the inurnment right, nameplate and engraving, and the upkeep of the columbarium.
Bronze sheet metal urns are available from the church at the current price of $85. The person/persons handling the inurning arrangement may also furnish containers. Containers must not exceed allowable space in the niche. Interior measurements at the front are 10.5 inches wide, 10 3/8 inches high, 11.5 inches deep tapering to a rear width of 5 7/8 inches. If it is planned to place two urns then each urn must not exceed one-half the allowable space.
Living God Lutheran Church, through its pastor, shall arrange with the family of the deceased for the inurnment of the cremated remains and a committal service. Committal without benefit of clergy shall not be permitted.
Information brochures are available at the church office for persons with a serious interest in our columbarium. Our Office Manager will be glad o meet with individuals or family members interested in Living God's columbarium.
