The First United Methodist Church wanted a brand new home that would allow them to grow their congregation and further the mission of their church. Ambler Architects created a plan for the church that was met with a 96% approval rating.
The church takes inspiration from traditional gothic forms while utilizing stained glass motifs in a new and modern way. A large stained glass window greets the congregation as they arrive and shines down on them as they walk through the building, welcoming them to the church.
It features a large sanctuary, classrooms, offices, daycare facility, choir and lecture room, youth facility, library, kitchen, and lots of gathering space. The church sits on 64 acres of land and will grow to include a new lake, lake chapel, and columbarium.
Start and End Date: 2011- 2013
