|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Faith Memorial Prayer Garden is a meditative and beautifully landscaped place dedicated to both the saints who have gone before us and the saints still among us.
The initial planning for the Memorial Prayer Garden began in 2005. The Memorial Prayer Garden Committee was formed, and the construction of the Columbarium and the Memory Wall was completed utilizing purchases of niches, engraved pavers and engraved names for the Memory Wall plus donations. The dedication for the Garden was held on November 2, 2008.
Landscaping plans were drawn by Bever Landscaping of Forest Lake, and the plans were divided into three phases. The third and final phase included the fountain, the landscaping and the completion of the circling paved walkway with retaining wall seating. All of the monies have been raised through sales of niches, engraved pavers, and engraved names on the Memory Wall, private donations received and monies raised through the Fund Raisers. The committee now moves to the ongoing phase of perpetual care.
The Memorial Prayer Garden brochure states "Our Memorial Prayer Garden is an expression of Christian faith and love. It is a return to the tradition of our ancestors who believed in interment of its members and their families close by the church where they had faithfully served and worshiped.
We believe this feature on the grounds of Faith Lutheran Church helps to completely serve the congregation and contributes towards 'a more caring community' as highlighted in our mission statement."
