Project Scope: The Advent project consisted of a newly constructed Sanctuary, Gathering Space, and Music/Office Suite. All these areas are contained under one roof and attached to the existing Education building. The 9,075 square-foot sanctuary features a 65-foot tall, heavy timber truss roof system, wood ceiling, and sloped floor with a seating capacity for approximately 700 members. The pulpit area is surrounded by a stone chancel wall with a 21-foot-tall back-lit custom-made heavy timber cedar cross.
Worshippers enter the facility through a 3,300 gathering space with the same ceiling height and roof construction as the sanctuary. The interior is designed to host approximately 400 members between services and functions as a multi-use area during the week.
