Earle Street Baptist Church Addition

About

Off West Stone Avenue, tucked in the heart of Elias Earle Historic District is a church, Earle Street Baptist. Much like the surrounding neighborhood, the church experienced exponential growth throughout the last decade which resulted in a flourishing congregation with no room to grow. Their solution was to build a 14,000 square foot, three-story addition next to the existing historic sanctuary.

The first floor expanded their preschool wing with a new check-in area and several classrooms. The second and ground level includes a new welcome center with offices for church staff and conference rooms. The third floor is lined by a historic timeline installation and ample classroom space for parishioners.  Additional scope included smaller renovations to the existing building in order to seamlessly merge the two structures, a church garden, a new parking lot and campus landscaping.
