The first phase of construction in the church’s master plan focused on a key element of the church’s mission and doubled the amount of dedicated space for children and families. The new children’s ministry center is a 2-story facility that includes a large multipurpose room on each floor for corporate worship and events. Fun and interactive play areas are a focus in the new building, providing spaces where children can connect with friends and teachers. A large deck, accessible from the outside, is available for all ministries to use. The building also features a secure drop-off location for younger children, as well as an area for parents to connect with each other. On the second floor, the elementary students are greeted with a lobby and hallways that feature color-coded classroom entrances to make it easy for students to find their room. Part of the bottom floor will also be used for a weekday preschool.
