Columbarium at HMC

Hyattsville Mennonite Church (HMC) has become a congregation whose members are settled, have raised families, and are now envisioning retirement in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Accordingly, we are realizing the need to plan and provide for end-of-life arrangements for former and present members, associates, and their families.

Proposed rendering of the columbarium at HMC by David Conrad AIA, NCARB CPH.

The design of the columbarium and memorial garden seeks to include the end-of-life arrangements as part of the continuing life of the congregation, rather than being remote from it. The image above shows the location and design that was recently approved by the congregation (a series of slides showing more details of the design and construction is available at the bottom of this page).

Our capital fund drive seeks to raise $50,000 so that we can commit to the construction of our columbarium and memorial garden. You can send your tax-deductible gifts to the church at:

Hyattsville Mennonite Church
4217 East-West Highway
Hyattsville, MD 20782
Attn: Columbarium Fund

You may also donate via PayPal. HMC also accepts contributions with Zelle®. Please use as the recipient email address when you send your contribution. Please check with your financial institution to set up your Zelle® account to send funds.

Arrangements for the purchase of niches and other memorials in the columbarium and memorial garden will be announced in the near future.
