A Quiet Place that Lifts our Sights

In life and death, we belong to God. This foundational belief has framed the hope of Christ-followers in every generation and impacts our Christian view of eternity.

Community Presbyterian Church offers an elegantly designed Columbarium, a tranquil home for the cremated remains of deceased Christ-followers and their immediate families.

The Celebration Resurrection Chapel and Memorial Courtyard (Columbarium) encourages reverence and assurance that our loved ones, though absent from us, await us and remain with our Lord for eternity.

To learn more about the Columbarium, arrange a tour or obtain pricing information, please contact the church office.

KRM_9840-EditQ. What is a Columbarium?
A. It is an ancient Latin word for “dove nest.” Today, it designates a place that holds the cremains of loved ones in individual niches.

Q. Is cremation acceptable to God?
A. Scripture informs us that God created us from dust, and to dust we will return. Whether we are buried or cremated, God will fulfill his promise for our resurrection.

Q. Why should loved ones be inurned in Celebration?
A. Rather than adding distance and travel time, visitation may easily coincide with a trip to Celebration. The location on church grounds simplifies accessibility.

Q. We love this Columbarium, but we have reserved a niche somewhere else.
A. One advantage of cremation is the ability to place a portion of the ashes in more than one meaningful location.

Q. How affordable is it?
A. The average burial today costs approximately $16,000. In addition to costing only one-third of this average, each niche holds two urns.

Q. Is the Columbarium secure?
A. The building is secure by lock and the walled-in, gated courtyard has controlled access.

Q. Will Celebration have a cemetery one day?
A. No, the town’s master plan prohibits it.

Q. Do I own the niche?
A. The buyer receives a right-to-use, non-transferable license.

Q. Are there additional maintenance fees?
A. No, the Columbarium is maintained in perpetuity.
