An extension corridor provides a new west entrance to the church complex. The exterior consists primarily of EFIS to match the existing buildings. Panels are detailed to provide architectural accents at the windows, and additional reveals added to provide visual interest to the remaining areas.  Each entry is covered by a canopy offering protection from weather elements. Existing parking spaces and access were redesigned for efficient traffic flow. A landscaping theme was developed and carried from the new addition through to the existing building. Before construction commenced, an existing building, identified as “The Rock”, was demolished and the site prepared for new construction.
