Serenity Memorial Garden & Ashuary

The Serenity Memorial Garden & Ashuary at Roscoe United Methodist Church, will give church members and the community a serene & peaceful location to pray, reflect, memorialize or lay their loved ones to rest.  This tranquil garden setting sits at the west area of RUMC on the corner of Reed Ln & Race St near the parking lot.  Paving bricks within the garden patio area will be available for engraving and can be used as a memorial marker or other types of memorial recognition.  Engraving fees will help generate funds to complete this project,
make future improvements and fund maintenance
of the garden.  Click here to see a short 3-D video of the plan for the garden. 

Surrounded by trees and beautiful landscaping,
this memorial garden will enhance our historical church and grounds for generations to come.
