The city of Greenwood prevailed in its case against Dr. Kenneth Berg as a judge ruled against the pastor for two of the three municipal charges filed by the city. Greenwood charged Berg, 81, for the failing to receive city approval before installing a columbarium inside his church, Midwest Memorial Chapel, located at 107 S. Sixth Avenue, in downtown Greenwood. A columbarium is a group of small niches used for the storage of cremated remains, such are typically kept in an urn. Berg was the founder of John Knox Village in Lee’s Summit.
