Columbarium Policies & Procedures



he property Sheridan Lutheran Church sits on is more than just the parking lot and building. If you venture behind the Family Life Center, you will find Sheridan’s Outdoor Worship Area that can be used for weddings and other special events, as well as a Columbarium, with niches available for the remains of your loved one. Also, starting at the southwest end of the parking lot there is a walking trail with benches overlooking our pond, where often turkeys, deer, fox and other wild animals can be seen. These amenities remain open to the public year-round.


The Columbarium at Sheridan provides the opportunity to remain spiritually connected to this Christian community and serves as an extension of Sheridan's ministry as it creates a serene place to reflect and worship. Simply stated, a columbarium is a slightly curved wall of 335 recesses (niches), which hold urns that contain remains. The design of Sheridan's columbarium provides a peaceful atmosphere and beautiful place for solitary prayer and reflection. It is accessible for those who wish to gather for prayer and remembrance overlooking the pond. The niches can accommodate one or two urns and are identifiable with personalized engraved granite face plates.


Members of Sheridan Lutheran Church and their family members are eligible to reserve a niche. Family members include, but are not limited to, a spouse, parents, grandparents and children.


More than 50 niches have been sold, therefore each niche can be purchase for $2,500 each. The last 235 niches will be sold at a price of $2,950 each. Of these amounts, $250 pays for the actual cost of the niche and the remainder serves as a tax-deductible donation to Sheridan Lutheran Church. (NOTE: The purchase price may be changed by the Columbarium Committee to reflect changes in economic conditions. Prices do not include additional expenses associated with is the niche, such as the cost of cremation, fees associated with opening and closing the niche, engraving the granite face plate, or the cost of the urns. Installment payments for the purchase price of the niches will be considered upon request.)


Individuals interested in purchasing a niche should contact the church office, 402-423-4769. With a reservation, you will receive a copy of the contract, the church's policies and a certificate acknowledging the location of the niche.
