The Meditation Garden Story

DSC02252For several years, members of the SUMC congregation dreamed of incorporating a meditation or memorial garden into the church grounds. 

In the fall of 2010, with the blessing and approval of the Board of Trustees and the Administrative Council, a committee was formed to begin planning the garden.

Once a specific site was identified, three flowering pear trees were planted.  These beautiful trees, while having a small profile, provide a new, distinictive look with each of the three growing seasons.  During the fall and winter of 2010, proposals and cost estimates were received and a plan was chosen.  Construction began in late spring 2011, and the garden was dedicated in July, 2011.
