This new and growing congregation first hired SMHa to assist with a space needs program and master plan. The plan addressed both short and long term building goals while preserving as many of the mature oak trees on the site as possible.
Completed in 2011, the 30,555-square-foot Phase I addition included a Fellowship Hall and classroom wing. Church leadership had a vision that the architecture would create an “established” feel similar to the Old Sheldon Church in rural South Carolina. The form, massing, and use of red brick on the Fellowship Hall brought a sense of permanence to this early phase of the project.
