The Columbarium at Wayzata Community Church offers a sacred place of peace and remembrance. In the tradition of the old churchyard cemetery, The Columbarium at Wayzata Community Church embraces the wholesome desire to remain close to those who have gone before us. It offers both a place of safe-keeping for cremated remains, and also a natural gathering space, where loved ones can be remembered, honored and celebrated.
The Columbarium, located in the courtyard between the Sanctuary and the ministers’ study, is a wonderful new opportunity for our faith community, and is open to everyone regardless of church affiliation.

Each of us has, or will at some time, know the death of a loved one. At such times, feelings of loss and despair cause us to ask God many questions. His answers, we hope, will be immediate and deliver to us renewed feelings of courage, wholeness, and comfort. I received such an answer when Jake Beard walked into the room and reminded me that Bill, my late husband, had been working with others to develop the Wayzata Community Church Columbarium, a sacred place for memorializing loved ones. It was going to take time and patience, but the door was opened for some comfort to enter.
Many of us long ago traveled to places far distant from our ancestors, our communities and their churches. We have found a new place in our lifetime, held close in our heart, where we can memorialize and feel close to loved ones lost. I’ve chosen the beautiful Wayzata Community Church Columbarium space for this purpose.
