Major Benefits of a Columbarium Program:
A columbarium program pays for itself and does not have to begin until the church has reserved enough niche spaces to cover the construction cost.
A columbarium program can provide additional monies needed for other projects in the church.
The columbarium becomes a part of the living church. It is a place of spirit. Family members can visit every week either before or after services. Families who have loved ones in a church columbarium are more inclined to remain faithful to that church.
Columbarium Designers, Inc. columbaria are also designed to provide memorial opportunities for those who do not choose cremation or have loved one’s buried elsewhere thereby opening the columbarium garden to all members of the congregation.
If your church wants to:
- Complete the circle of life for its members
- Have a place to remember church members and their families
- Strengthen ties between families and the church
- Provide pre-planning for families
Then a Tribute Center is something you should consider.
Columbarium Designers, Inc. success has been based on our willingness and ability to guide the columbarium committee through every step of the process. We will review your needs, study your facilities and submit a proposed memorial columbarium that will be custom designed to meet your specific needs....without obligation, of course.
Cremation. Try looking it up on Google!
Have you ever typed the word “cremation” into Google? What did you get? After the sponsored ads, I got locations in my area I could go to that I could get a cremation done. Then of course Wikipedia with an accurate but cold statement of what cremation is. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cremation) There is even a youtube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHBaCZ3slis ) you can actually see a cremation being done! It is almost 5 minutes and over 11 million people have viewed it. (Me included) Next a website with information from cremation providers to merchandise you can buy to answer to questions you may have. (http://www.cremationinfo.com/cremationinfo/index.htm )
By now you are probably wondering “what’s my point”?
A Columbarium Program Offers Compassion
Your group is excited it has made the decision to include a Columbarium on the campus. The committee chose the perfect design and construction partner, loves the master plan. Enough niches have been sold so construction of the first phase has been completed. The tracking of the sales online is easy and everything is going great! There is a death of a member and the family approaches you needing help. You are ready to offer guidance in selecting a niche, but realize their grief is deep and they really need your help and compassion.
