Grace Presbyterian Church

Columbia, SC

This 250 seat sanctuary, fellowship area, church offices, children’s education space, and parking is the first phase of LS3P’s master plan. Future phases include a 350+ seat sanctuary, covered drop off, expanded church office area, expanded children’s education space, expanded parking, family life center, adult class space, and an exterior gazebo / gathering structure.

The design team minimized site disturbance to maintain existing trees wherever possible, locating the sanctuary away from the street to connect it to the forest environment. With materials and elements appropriate to the forest setting including gabled wood frame construction, lapped siding, masonry, and glass, the design welcomes worshippers with a comfortable “front porch” reception.
