Memorials and The Gardens


Memorial Services are held at Sun Lakes United Methodist Church in the Sanctuary, seating up to 600 people, or in the smaller Chapel which seats up to 80 people.

On our Church grounds we have installed The Gardens, a beautiful and reverent place to hold a committal or internment service, as well as a peaceful setting for reflective meditation. This area provides a memorial site similar to the “little country churchyard” of years ago. With the completion of The Gardens in April 1991, we offer three options for disposition of cremains:

  • A choice of niches – single or companion – each including a repository for cremains;
  • Committal of cremains in The Gardens together with a commemorative plaque;
  • A memorial wall plaque for those wishing to be buried elsewhere.Church gardens

We will assist in final disposition through arrangements with any licensed funeral director.  All of these services are available to members and friends of Sun Lakes United Methodist Church or the greater Sun Lakes area.
