Columbarium

Covenant Lutheran Church Columbarium “Those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give them will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.”  John 4:14

Covenant Lutheran Church is blessed to be able to offer a Columbarium Ministry to its members and their families.  Death is a difficult time of grief and transition and our goal is to provide families with pastoral care directed toward healing and hope.

The Covenant Lutheran Church Columbarium is a permanent structure with niches or compartments designed to hold urns containing the cremated remains (cremains) of loved ones. We commit the body to the grave or Columbarium, but, more importantly we commit our loved one to God.

The word “Columbarium” comes from the Latin term “Columba” meaning “dovecote or dwelling place of a dove.” In Christian tradition, the dove symbolizes the embodiment of the Holy Spirit. It is a place of contemplation, prayer and remembrance.
