Oak Ridge United Methodist Church Family Life Center
Oak Ridge, NC
Oak Ridge United Methodist Church is a growing congregation with the faith challenge of looking to the future while honoring the past. To address the needs of the future congregation, the church needed to expand its worship services and community outreach programs. ESPA was selected to conduct an extensive programming and master planning of the church grounds. The master plan developed a new Family Life Center with a multi-purpose room, classrooms, elevated walking track, and flexible gathering spaces. The project also addressed enhancing the entrance to the administration wing of the church’s campus with a covered vehicle drop-off. The Family Life Center was constructed with provisions for an additional story to be added as future needs dictate.
