Memorial Garden Ministry

We take this opportunity to mention that all church members, friends of the church, and their loved ones can make advance arrangements, at any time, in order to have their cremated remains interred in the Memorial Garden. The cost of our Burial Rights Agreement is currently $500.00, and this provides a Burial Rights Certificate that establishes the right of the burial of one’s ashes when the need arises. Please call Holly Baksa (203-269-5614) for further information and/or a copy of the garden’s Policy and Procedures.

We remind everyone of the opportunity as explained below to purchase a brick, etched-and-filled with an appropriate inscription in honor or memory of a friend or relative, or to honor a significant event in your life of a loved one, such as a birth in the family, a baptism, your new membership in the church, your child’s confirmation, or your wedding.

“4”x”8” Engraved Bricks are  sold by the Memorial Garden Ministry as a permanent memorial for your loved ones. Maximum characters per line are 15 and the maximum number of lines is 3. Cost is $50.00 per brick. (Make checks payable to First United Methodist Church, memo – Memorial bricks.)  Blank forms are with the Memorial Garden display in the Narthex.  

Incidentally, any contributions for or payments to our Memorial Garden should specify Memorial Garden in the memo area, in order to prevent their inadvertently being credited to the more general Memorial Fund.
