O God, You have been our help in ages past,
You are our hope for years to come.
Be thou our guide while life shall last
And our eternal home. Amen
Remembrance Garden Dedication
April 16, 2000
Through the vintage McBee Avenue church gates and into the garden, you will view the beautiful Good Samaritan Statue, hear the laughter of children on nearby playgrounds and experience the steeple bell melodies. The superb trees and landscapes provide a place of peaceful reflection.
The Remembrance Garden is located in view of the church where so much spiritual nurture has been invested. Whether the celebration of births, dedications, baptisms, marriages, or a life coming to the end of an earthly journey, the First Baptist Church heritage of peace, hope, joy and love is conveyed to those who enter the garden gates.
Read the Rules and Regulations regarding the Columbarium, including a fee schedule. Please contact the church office for additional information.
We go from here remembering the path our Savior trod
That we might have abundant life and know the love of God.
If pain or darkness be our lot, with him, we will not fear:
For resurrection joy and light are drawing ever near.
-Donna M. Forrester
