A Columbarium Needs a Plan
Membership growth strategists suggest including a columbarium on the campus of a church or organization. Family members stay committed to the church or organization because their loved one is there, other family members may attend a memorial service or visit the location more often. A columbarium program brings heritage to a church or organization. Cremation is on the rise across the United States. Cremation is less expensive, environmentally friendly, and columbariums do not take up much space. Having your church or organization offering a columbarium program to your members, pre-death planning becomes easier to do since they are already a part of the church or organization.
