Originally constructed in 1986 by O‑A‑K, the sanctuary had a large skylight, exposed laminated beams with tongue and groove decking, stained glass throughout and a spanish tile roof and bell tower. Site-work and landscaping were included in this project.
In 2009, O‑A‑K completed the construction of the 4,641 square foot single story addition to the sanctuary with no interruption to services. A 3,803 square foot renovation of the nave added new seating for 470 more people, chapel with 50 seats, men’s and women’s public restrooms, sacristy, ushers/bride room, narthex, cry room and two confessionals. Flooring and two walls were finished with Jerusalem limestone replicating the "Wailing Wall". Also included were HVAC infrastructures upgrades, new flooring throughout nave, major acoustics/sound system improvements and a parking lot expansion to add 256 spaces.
