Shepherd of the Prairie Lutheran Church

Huntley, IL

Shepherd of the Prairie embarked on a continuation of building 10 years after building their first phase of a larger master plan. In the course of visioning work with the congregation, it became clear that there was a strong desire for a permanent worship space. 

GROTH Design Group saw potential to make that feasible with a creative redesign of the overall Master Plan.

With the building of a permanent place of worship, the Phase I temporary worship space would serve multi-use educational, youth and fellowship functions. The location of fellowship and dining in the existing worship would not require the church to relocate the existing the kitchen.

The new addition doubled the seating of the former worship in a liturgically designed new sanctuary, provided hospitality in a generous gathering space, created new offices convenient to the entries and education spaces, including music rehearsal and expanded child care. Near term renovations will facilitate dining and multi-use programming and future planned renovations will expand youth programming.
