University United Methodist Church Columbarium
When University United Methodist decided to build an outdoor baptistery and
columbarium, we were excited for the challenge. We had done outdoor baptisteries before but never had the opportunity to do a columbarium. Utilizing an existing corridor between two of their buildings, the columbarium was conceived as a prayer garden. At the north end of the columbarium, the outdoor baptistery provides a focal point and the soothing sound of falling water when not in use. What was once an underutilized area now is a peaceful place of reflection and prayer.
