CMF MOVES FOWARD WITH COLUMBARIUM

The Christian Men’s Fellowship (CMF) has cleared a site behind the church to create a columbarium–a place for the respectful storage of cinerary urns (a deceased’s cremated remains).  Del Lee removed the old building materials on the site, and Justin Lee and Elbert Lee, Jr., cleared the site of underbrush. Although some trees were removed, most remain to provide an attractive, restful area.

Bricks (shown below) salvaged from the building that burned in 2007 will be incorporated into the columbarium plans.

The word columbarium comes from the Latin columbia (dove) and originally referred to compartmentalized housing for doves and pigeons, called a “dovecote.”
