Douglas, GA

This new church facility includes a worship space, gathering area, kitchen, office, sacristy, reconciliation room and other support spaces.

The building’s exterior design reflects a mission style and uses a combination of stucco and brick masonry. A colonnade connects the main entrance to the parking area. The mission style carries through to the interior as well. The worship space incorporates a high pitched ceiling, beams, columns and pilasters, decorative wall niches, and a large raised curved sanctuary platform. The interior finishes include ceramic tile floor, wood trim, wood pews, and painted wall and ceiling surfaces with painted accents.


The design of a religious structure should reflect the values of its congregation and encourage reverence, fellowship and worship.

At the same time, it must be comfortable and accessible. Beauty and function should work together to make a church a place people want to be.

SRJ designs of religious facilities embody all these values, while keeping a careful eye on the cost control so critical to those entrusted with the stewardship of funds donated by the faithful.
