Precedent Images

A core team of 30 including staff, Board members and those who volunteered their construction, engineering, technology or other skills was invited to look at 120 images of churches, schools and other public spaces in an attempt to identify what we mean by “welcoming.” Extremely modern images were largely rejected as “too cold,” while extremely traditional images were largely rejected as “not us.” Participants responded well to images with windows, trees and natural light, ample outdoor space and a camp-like feel. There was a lot of discussion about whether we continue outdoor worship, or whether we include windows in the sanctuary.

Please note: Nothing has been decided yet. This is an ongoing discussion that could use your voice.
