The existing youth space began as a temporary repurposing of a garage outbuilding due to an expanding youth group and a lack of dedicated space in the main church building. This addition and remodel will bring that "shed" up to code with proper exiting, restrooms & ventilation, as well as providing a kitchenette/cafe area and large assembly space. Most importantly it will establish this building as an inviting and meaningful place for the community's youth. By doubling the existing square footage, it will also allow for continued growth of the youth group. Long range planning provided future possibilities of connecting this space to future programming as well as the existing church building.
