The memorial garden of Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church, located on the north side of the church’s front lawn, is a beautiful place to admire creation and commune with our heavenly Father. It was designed as a sanctuary for rest, meditation and prayer, visits with friends, an outdoor classroom or a setting for a small wedding. In addition, the garden is available for the interment of cremated remains in certain anticipation of their glorious resurrection promised by our Savior and King.
Featured prominently on the wall near the entrance is a large bronze plaque with names of loved ones in whose memory donations have been made to the Memorial Garden. To request a bronze nameplate to be installed on the Memorial Garden plaque, please contact the church office. Any gift over $250 will allow us to order a nameplate for the plaque with your loved one's name and dates of birth and death.
The Memorial Garden is also available for the interment of cremated remains. It is our conviction that the body is to be treated with reverence and respect, even in death, until such time as the body of believers is resurrected on the last day (I Corinthians 15:42-44; I Thessalonians 4:16).
The memorial garden is intended for the use of members, former members, staff and supported missionaries of LMPC and their immediate families, namely parents, children, siblings and their respective spouses. Exceptions to this policy may be made upon request to the memorial garden committee.
Receipts from interment fees will be used towards the memorial garden’s development, maintenance and care. The fee for interment is $600 and is payable at the time of interment application. The amount of the interment fee may be changed by the Session at any time. The fee includes cremain burial rights, including all services to commit the cremains to the earth, and engraving of the deceased’s name, birth and death dates on the plaque provided by the church. This fee is payable directly to LMPC.
