Phase I:
Fuqua & Partners Architects provided design services for this total relocation project for First Bible Church’s existing buildings. This new sanctuary has a choral area and a baptistry. The second floor houses an audio/video area and the
third level serves as the lighting mezzanine. The two-story educational wing has numerous classrooms for all ages, additional office space and a designated area for the Awana program. In-house services included master planning, interior design and landscape architecture. The master plan includes a youth center with outside recreation-facilities, an amphitheater and an area for retirement housing.

Phase II
This project consisted of a two story educational addition, full service kitchen and fellowship hall that can also serve as a recreation space/gymnasium. A hearthside
which mimics the one constructed in Phase I serves as a gathering space for worshipers as they move about the facility. An expansion of both wings of the worship center was also included in this project.
