Snellville United Methodist Church dedicated a Columbarium on Sunday, January 24th. 

A columbarium is a structure consisting of small niches designed to hold urns containing cremated remains. The name Columbarium comes from the Latin “columbary” meaning a structure provided for the nesting of doves.

The dove is a symbol of God’s spirit and peace. 

Dr. Cantrell, Senior Pastor, dedicated the space to the Glory of God to be, ‘a place of rest, prayer, memorialization and meditation.’ The Church Columbarium is located on the Church campus in the beautiful prayer garden.
