Building Project Pictures

These are computer-generated pictures of the proposed building project, as of September 2017. Thanks to HSR Associates for the images. Click on any picture to see a high-resolution version. A video tour with a glimpse inside is available on our church YouTube channel.

This view from the southeast shows the new addition (the portion with the grey roof) on the right of the existing education wing and lobby (white roofs). The existing parking lot, ramps and entrances remain. The new construction will be finished in brick and dark EFS to complement the existing church.
This view from the northeast shows the new addition adjacent to the sanctuary. Note that all three existing rental houses are expected to remain in place, even though they are not shown in this picture.
The new entrance under the covered drop-off is level with the driveway. The covered drop-off and level entrance is a much-requested feature to allow easier all-weather access for the elderly, disabled, and families with young children. The existing church and office entrances are visible in the left of this image.
Inside the new narthex/lobby looking east at the entrance. The large south-facing windows on the right in the image will let in lots of natural light for a bright and welcoming atmosphere. This is an area where the scrip table can be set up, along with our Welcome center and coffee bar. We may put in cafe tables and a flatscreen monitor to provide a comfortable area for mingling and watching the worship service.
The north side of the lobby provides large, accessible mens’ and women’s restrooms and a prominent staircase for easy access to the fellowship hall on the lower level. The lower level will also include a large space which can be used as either a storage room or a classroom.
The exterior brick wall of the current building will become an attractive feature in the new lobby, with doors leading into the back of the worship area approximately where the quilt hangs in the current narthex. The Memorial Committee plans to donate a custom display case for church history materials. The brick wall on the left could be a prominent place to display the US and Christian flags.
