Nativity of Our Lord | Rhinelander, WI
Nativity of Our Lord parish had two worship and school locations. The parish is moving toward one location on the downtown worship site. The first step toward the single campus was a small school renovation project in 2015. The second step is the renewal of the Place of Worship.
The worship seating is being reduced and rearranged and a balcony is being removed. These allow the creation of a new Gathering space inside the existing structure. Previously, no Gathering area was available for worship attendees. Additionally, a new Adoration Chapel is being created within meeting space alongside the existing Sanctuary. Sacristy and music storage are all being renovated to provide better support for the worship. The reorder of the nave also allows better arrangement of the music ministry, and accessibility to the sanctuary and flexible seating space for ADA compliant seating.
Two additions to the building will provide an accessible main entry, multi-use meeting spaces and adequate restroom accommodations for worship without the need to enter the school spaces.
