Memorial Brick Pathway: Bricks Available this Sunday

Beginning Sunday, April 21, we will begin the process of updating our Memorial Brick Pathway that was previously near the Activities Center (removed due to construction). The new pathway will be between the Sanctuary and Education buildings (along the edge outside of playground) and will be installed this summer/fall to include the existing bricks from storage as well as new engraved bricks.

The first step of this process is making new bricks available for purchase in memory/honor of a loved one. This Sunday, you will find a table in the Gathering Lobby with the necessary form to specify the wording you'd like to have engraved on brick(s). Barbara Nelson will be available at the table to assist, as there are specific guidelines on how many characters can be used (3 lines, 20 characters per line). Each brick is 4x8" and costs $50. Payment will be due via check/cash/card when your form is turned in.

We look forward to adding this beautiful asset to our campus as a way to remember and honor those we love.
