This new 22,000 SF sanctuary, designed by Eidos Architects, stands on the ground of the church’s previous gathering center, which was demolished at the start of the project. The new worship space is attached directly to the rest of the existing building and is a study in creative structural engineering. The interior of the space is almost entirely without visible columns or supports–meaning the structural engineer, McGlamery Engineering Group, had to devise a way to support the structure solely via trusses. Four main trusses span the entire building.
Another notable feature of the sanctuary is the baptismal font. The marble font is a recessed pool in the main sanctuary measuring approximately five feet by five feet, and three feet deep.
