When God calls our brothers and sisters in Christ home, we generally return their bodies to the ground, "earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust". Knowing that, we are still joined together with our loved ones in the Body of Christ. Returning their ashes to earth here at Hope's Memorial Garden is a great witness of their Christian faith. In committing the ashes where one has worshipped, there is a testimony to the oneness of all those who are saved by faith in Jesus Christ.
Christians who have professed faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and desire to have their ashes returned to the ground in our Memorial Garden are welcome to do so. Hope's Memorial Garden is intended to be the final resting place for the ashes (cremains) of those Christians who wish their bodies to be cremated.
