Sanctuary and Educational Facility
A consistent increase in the congregation size combined with the deterioration of the 125-year-old sanctuary resulted in a decision to construct a new facility. But demolition of the old sanctuary presented a challenge because the congregation wanted to preserve an addition that was added in the 1980s, and incorporating it into the new facility.

The new building can accommodate approximately 400 people when overflow capabilities from the adjoining fellowship hall are taken into consideration. Through the cooperative efforts of the design professional and general contractor, the existing addition was incorporated into the design of the new building, giving the impression that the entire project was constructed as one. To retain a bit of the past, the cupola from the original sanctuary was incorporated into the exterior design of the new building. Praise from the Customer: “We were pleased with Jarrettsville Builders. We experienced:

  • Superior cost control
  • Outstanding schedule control and clear flow of information
  • Site construction managers who protected our interests
  • First-rate quality and craftsmanship

The Christian manner in which they operate their business will allow you as a project manager to sleep with confidence that you will get first-rate construction performance from Jarrettsville Builders. Please feel free to give me a call to discuss our relationship with Jarrettsville Builders.”
