more worshipers from our growing community. Our building has new Sunday School rooms, and a new kitchen for when we have dinners in our spacious fellowship hall. We recently completed our Memorial Garden which is a beautiful and peaceful addition to our Church.  Please join us for worship this coming Sunday.

CHerry Lane


Cherry Lane Church enjoys a rich history dating back to 1866. Our church facility evolved from meeting in homes to a one-room school-house to our first church building in 1866. In the early 1900’s, we added a front entrance, bell and stained-glass windows. Then, in 1960, a large renovation added a fellowship hall in the basement and Sunday School rooms. Finally, in 2002, we undertook a re-build of the church to accommodate our growing congregation. Of course, we retained the stained-glass windows and the bell.  In 2019, we completed our Memorial Garden.  It is a peaceful and beautiful addition to our Church.

For centuries, burial places have been provided near churches so that the remains of deceased members may rest close to their earthly spiritual homes.  Changes in traditional burial customs has seen significant increased practice of cremation.  In response to cremation and interment as a form of burial, Cherry Lane United Methodist Church has established a Memorial Garden; a place where the cremated remains of church members, relatives, and friends may be interred.   In addition to a final resting place for loved ones, the Memorial Garden is also a peaceful place of tranquil beauty to pray, meditate, give thanks for lives that have been shared, and remember and celebrate life eternal.  Along with plants, shrubs, ground cover and benches, there is a plaque displaying the names and dates of birth and death of those memorialized.

The Garden will be maintained and cared for by the church’s cemetery steward, under the direction of the Trustees.
