Murray Christian Church
Reinhardt & Associates was commissioned by the Murray Christian Church to provide design services for a new Fellowship Hall and education wing addition. The original church included a multi-purpose fellowship hall and education area, which had become too small for the congregation. In an effort to plan for the future, the building committee requested ideas for phased construction and the master planning of the total site. The phased design of the Fellowship/Education wing began with the construction of classrooms and administrative offices, as well as an increase in the Narthex area.
A significant effort was extended to look for alternative ways of utilizing materials and affecting construction methods to keep costs to a minimum. The initial phase is a 42’ x 56’ addition and includes a spacious narthex as well as classroom and administrative space. A new linear skylight visually tie together the old and new portions of the building, and a new brick bell tower provides identity.
