Shepherd of the Prairie Lutheran Church | Huntley, IL
In the course of GROTH Design Group’s visioning work with the congregation, it became clear that there was a strong desire for a permanent worship space as a first priority. GROTH Design Group realized the potential to make that feasible with a creative redesign of the overall Master Plan.
The new worship location is more convenient to existing and expanded parking; it allows the main gathering space entry to be visible from the road; and it opened the interior worship up to the local street - all critical components to promote growth. The addition doubles the seating of the former worship in a liturgically-designed new sanctuary, provides hospitality in a generous gathering space, creates new offices convenient to the entries and education spaces, including music rehearsal and expanded child care spaces.
