In recent years, Community Baptist has experienced a resurgence in membership, growing from around 20 to over 300 members. CJC was hired to assist the church in evaluating the existing facilities, identifying future needs, and preparing the master plan. A master plan was developed to connect the two existing buildings, and add a new classroom wing, office suite and 400 seat sanctuary.
The church congregation is primarily focused on family, so the project features a secured playground visible from the main lobby, two preschool classrooms that will serve as tornado shelters with hardened walls, hardened ceiling and FEMA doors, and a lobby which serves as a space for large meals and functions. Once all phases are complete, the building will allow the church to serve 800 members and guests.
