Oak Grove is renovating the church courtyard to create a beautiful space with updated grass areas, landscaping, and seating areas. The landscaping will include a section reserved for the interment or scattering of cremains. This will provide a place where families may choose to scatter or inter the remains of loved ones. As many of you know, all spaces in the church cemetery are reserved, so the new garden will provide additional space for those choosing cremation.
The goal is to have an area that is appropriately beautiful to remember loved ones and also accessible for the many happy activities of the church. The space will continue to be used for many functions. There will be a large grassy area in the center, large Crepe Myrtles in the corners closest to the roads, plus hydrangeas, azaleas, and other shrubs and plants. The area is already serviced by an irrigation system to preserve the planting material.
