Your Sanctuary Renovation Team has been hard at work! We have regularly met with Carl Christianson and Sarah Maizel, and we have looked at different options to find a design that meets your charge as a congregation to have the renovated Sanctuary be a space that is conducive to a sense of worship and transcendence, and that also has maximum flexibility for our external mission uses.
A ramp will be installed on the left side of the pulpit area to give better access to the podium. In addition, the choir loft will be moved to the left side of the organ because we recognized that the choir needed to be more integrated into the life of the worshipping community.
An audio/video booth will be installed in a corner of the music room with a window looking out to the sanctuary. Our A/V capabilities need to be updated, as after COVID many people will choose to stay connected with our community without physically entering the building.
Next to the A/V booth we will have a set of double doors for a more direct access to the music room.
The computer-generated images on this page do not reflect the final color scheme. Next steps will include making decisions on flooring and seating. We will keep you updated. We are excited about the design and we hope you, too!
