Florence Baptist Church Christian Growth Center & Welcome Center

Florence Baptist Church Christian Growth Center & Welcome Center

The Christian Growth Center provides a vibrant and flexible facility that serves as a home for the youth ministry component of the church. The bright colors, exposed mechanical systems and bold shapes contribute a lively quality in both the classrooms and common areas within the building.

The Welcome Center builds upon the playful architectural theme developed in the Christian Growth Center while also providing the entry point and wayfinding hub for the church campus. Spacious gathering areas encourage spirited interaction among children and adults alike. On the building exterior, red brick is utilized to weave the buildings into the existing fabric of the Florence Baptist Campus. Large scale windows and cast stone accents provide the defining details and produce a point of departure from the adjacent older structures. A light filled cupola crowns the Welcome Center and acts as a symbolic beacon to the community day and night.
