Design for Innovation

BETHEL LUTHERAN

FLEXIBLE AND RECONFIGURABLE

After a program and site analysis, WSA Studio prepared color renderings and a three-dimensional model for the church to utilize in their fundraising campaign. The final design which was implemented capitalizes on flexible and reconfigurable worship space to accommodate the diverse demands on the sanctuary. Also, a private chapel is located on the corner of the building, allowing congregants to gain access to the building twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week for prayer and spiritual support. Since the completion of this project, the congregation has grown by 50% and outreach programs are more robust, the youth programs are expanding and the overall effectiveness of the ministry has improved.
