Potential Ministry Expansion Concept

The following renderings are “concept” only. In fact, we’ve discussed and included many additional ideas we’ve heard since last week’s meeting into the concept. Additional congregational input will be be included in the next phase as we move from concept towards detailed design.

Concept Priorities

Through initial input from our leadership team, staff and people who attend South Harbor, we landed on the priorities listed below. Though we realize there are many more hopes and wishes we all have, we also are seeking to be fiscally responsible and name the first and second order priorities. We will revisit and refine these during additional input sessions in June.

First Level Priorities

  • Increased, intimate, brighter worship space
  • Consolidated, functional, secure kids space
  • Supporting lobby/ gathering space
  • Restrooms to support size
  • Parking to meet demand

Additional, Second Level Priorities

  • Multipurpose/ medium space
  • Work/ Office space

Current South Harbor Floorplan


April Floorplan Concept

This floor plan is the third iteration as we continue to dream and ideate possible solutions to our priorities for the project. In this past week, we have already made changes to the concept based on your feedback. Unfortunately, we do not yet have the most recent edition to post, but will share that as soon as we can.
