DTW worked with this congregation to identify its most important issues. This church had slowly expanded its campus over a forty-year period, and at this point, its most pressing need was to enlarge and modernize its original structure, its sanctuary. The church also wanted the chancel to be more integrated into the congregational seating. This was accomplished by widening the sanctuary and wrapping the congregation around the chancel, allowing a more modern and communal feel in the space.
