The focus of the building is to provide the first component of a four-tiered Master Plan for the development of this congregation’s mission.
In addition to serving as a children’s ministry and education center, the facility will also serve as an adult education center after normal hours and on weekends. The new building will also unite members of the congregation and public as they enter the space, providing visual and sensory experiences not only for young children but for adult congregation members as well. The building design addresses the needs of small children while addressing the needs for the adult population, which at times can be directly opposite from one another. The design team effectively merged these two juxtaposed elements into one cohesive union.
Due to the Architect’s planning, the Church Campus will continue to be a positive enhancement to the neighborhood as well as the City, while serving to increase opportunities for various ministries that are present, to better experience opportunities that are present, to better understand the experiences that await during a visit, and to ultimately want to return in the future.
