The GFUMC Prayer Garden is available as an option as you pre-arrange your funeral, or make plans for your family members. The Memorial Committee has “approved the interring or inhuming of human ashes, in consultation with the pastor and the family of the deceased, in our Prayer Garden for any church member, or member of their family. A suggested donation of $200 can be made for the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the Prayer Garden. A memorial brick will be made and placed in the Garden.” The Prayer Garden is a registered cemetery with the State of Illinois.
If you have questions or would like more information about including the Prayer Garden in your plans, please contact Cindy Smalley, Chair of the Memorial Committee, at (618) 466-3669.
