DTW Architects developed a master plan for this congregation so that their ground-up facility could be built in phases. The sanctuary, seating 650, was built first; the educational and fellowship hall wings were added over the next ten years. This congregation wanted a modern church that honored traditional design; DTW responded with a brick and wood exterior with a long white spire on the sanctuary. The two wings are joined to the sanctuary with a covered connector featuring repetitive white columns. The interior of the sanctuary is of soaring glue-lam construction that warms the space with its wood tones.
