Located in the middle of downtown, the building is very much a central part of the community. The architect’s use of natural materials inside and out gives the church a very organic texture. The slate exterior walls and ceiling will last for generations and have a relatively low environmental impact. The wooden structure is supported by spruce glue-lam beams and features the extensive use of spruce throughout the interior. The wood was locally-sourced and is finished with a natural tone that helps keep the interior bright. Daylight streams from the peak of the roof throughout the three-story building, which also contains a daycare center, meeting rooms, and an office.
