Memorial Prayer Garden

Memorial Prayer Garden

       In recent years we have developed a

ministry we believe is unique to Cherry

Park UMC. It is our Memorial Prayer

Garden which was begun in 2009 as a

way to honor those beloved church

members who have gone on to join the

saints in that “great cloud of witnesses”.

Their names are carved in stones for

perpetuity. Church as well as community

members also are able to purchase

Remembrance Bricks to honor and

remember loved ones. These bricks are

place within the garden walkways in a

variety of open, accessible locations.

 

The garden is beautiful and serene

space in which church or community

members may sit to quietly reflect, pray

feel the peace presence of God. The

original church cross that once stood

atop the church building now stands in

the garden and lends a connection with

our past that ties to our future.
