Through a generous gift by an anonymous donor, our church has installed a 48 niche columbarium in the Chapel for the “inurnment” of “cremains” of deceased church members and other eligible persons. The church has been licensed by the State of Ohio for this purpose.

Inurnment in the Columbarium shall be limited to the cremains of any minister or past minister of FUMC, member or past member of FUMC, and members of any of the above immediate family.

We spend our lives in our church from birth through death. It is a blessing to have a place to offer to those desiring to have their cremains and those of their loved ones resting within our church.

Owners of a space are required to keep FUMC notified concerning a current address and contact information.

There is a contract to be signed, and a certificate of Right of Inurnment will be issued at the time a space is reserved. The current cost of a space is $500, payable to FUMC, and may be purchased from Gail Baker in the church office Monday‐Friday, 9am‐3pm.
