The Good Shepherd Peace Garden follows the Christian tradition of interring the remains of members and their families near the church where they had faithfully served and worshipped. Our Garden is a place for peaceful meditation and prayer, designed to encourage quiet reflection and thanksgiving for the promise of eternal life.
The Peace Garden includes an area for interring the cremated remains of congregation members and their families in dedicated in-ground spaces (up to two interments per space) with a bronze remembrance plaque for each individual interred. A religious service will be held at each interment.
There is also a separate Memorial Wall to memorialize congregation members and deceased members of their families.
The Peace Garden takes advantage of the wooded area to the southwest of the Church building. It is a serene space large enough for gatherings or services; and built with durable, long-lasting materials. Good Shepherd considers the maintenance and care of the Peace Garden to be as important as that of the church building itself.
