The Sacramento Memorial Garden rests on the property of Sacramento Christian Fellowship (NHCF). In between the church's buildings lies a beautiful piece of land, covered with trees and ample shade. This area offers a great central location for a memorial garden in our greater Sacramento area, accesible from Interstate 80.
Current Landscape Design Plans
To bring the upmost dignity to our unborn, Sacramento Memorial Garden offers a Memorial Wall and ramada dedicated for Memorial Services to the general public.
Our landscape plans include:
- Small benches
- Vases for visitors' flowers
- Covered area, such as a ramada to provide protection from sun and rain
- Meandering walkways
- Landscape lighting
- Floral landscaping including drought tolerant plants to minimize watering needs and maintenance
- Memorial Wall for individualized plates displaying the names of our unborn
- ADA approved landscaping features
We are honored to have the support of local contractors and professionals as they have given generously of their time and resources. If you would like to serve or donate to Sacramento Memorial Garden, please visit our donation and volunteer pages.
Our Soft Opening Ceremony
The soft opening of the Sacramento Memorial Garden for the Unborn on September 10, 2016 was a moving and healing event. Pastors and leaders came from all over the Sacramento region to bless and honor the work being done to establish a serene place to honor the unborn or stillborn. Representatives from different churches, counseling groups and pregnancy centers came together to dedicate the garden a healing setting for those who have experienced pregnancy loss.
Pastor Jeff Axtell opened the ceremony in prayer and ended it with a tour of the memorial garden. The atmosphere surrounding the event was filled with both emotion and unity, culminating at the wall of remembrance where names of unborn or stillborn are etched on the granite wall. One man said, “I did not expect to feel so emotional. This was so moving.” He summed up what all of us experienced that morning in the tranquility of the memorial garden.
There is still much work to be done to complete this important project. Funding is needed to purchase materials and labor to finish the garden. We need your help to bring the Sacramento Memorial Garden for the unborn to completion. Go to the website to find out how you can be a part of this project.
