A Place for Remembering, Reflecting, Healing, Restoring
A memorial garden provides a long-lasting tribute to loved ones who have passed away. It offers a place for survivors to remember and heal. It is a sacred place of natural beauty where lives are remembered, families are cherished, and faith is sustained.
The memorial garden at Still Waters was inspired by Kurt and Linda Kleinhans in 2005. Kurt created a vision for the garden that became a reality through the dedicated efforts of the Ministry Council and Board of Trustees. Butch Beilman and Rick Jasinski collaborated on the design and construction of the Memorial Garden. The men of the church worked many hours implementing the design with its graceful stone pathways and beautiful plantings. A monument featuring the 23rd Psalm was installed by Miller Monument, and engraved commemorative pavers memorialize our loved ones. A stone wall marks the perimeter of this quiet sanctuary. The first memorial service was held in the Still Waters Memorial Garden in 2006 for the man who was its inspiration, Kurt Kleinhans.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want;
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters;
He restoreth my soul.
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil;
For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou anointest my head with oil,
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I will shall dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
