Our master plans address immediate needs while also accounting for future growth.

New Town United Methodist Church was growing and needed guidance on accommodating that growth both in the short-term and the long-term. As as their design partner, GuernseyTingle developed a master plan including two phases.

As part of phase one, GuernseyTingle designed a 17,400 square foot building that blends both contemporary and traditional architecture–a nod to the Church’s style of worship. Phase one included a multi-use space that seats 400 for worship and 350 for banquets. Additionally, the space converts into a fellowship hall with expanded banquet capacity.

Educational and administrative needs were also served in the phase one design. A classroom wing provides Sunday school space for all ages, and a narthex can be used as a gathering space. A dedicated 1,700 square feet of administrative space includes a reception area, six offices, and staff/volunteer workroom. A full kitchen also supports church gatherings.

In the future, the master plan includes over 60,000 square feet of phase two growth. Detailed in the plan are a 1,100-seat worship space, a dedicated youth hall, expanded educational and administrative areas, and a free-standing daycare facility.
