This three-denomination church comprised of Lutheran, Presbyterian and Episcopal congregations began master planning with Hughes Associates in 1994. The resulting layout is a “pinwheel” plan with future expansions anticipated.

The first phase consisted of a 285-seat sanctuary, expandable to 400 seats with the removal of some adjacent classroom walls, and a combination fellowship and commons with adjacent kitchen and administrative space. This phase, completed in September of 1997, included 11,000 SF of floor area and parking for 102.

The second phase, currently under construction, closely follows the original master plan. The 20,800 SF addition expands sanctuary seating to 475 and adds a 4,000+ SF fellowship hall, plus classrooms, child care rooms, offices and a youth/teen area. The Guaranteed Maximum Price is $1,970,000, and construction is expected to finish in April 2003.
