Church of the Brethren
The Boise Valley Church of the Brethren project includes multiple phases. First, a new church facility of approximately 6,300 sf will include a multipurpose area serving as a sanctuary and special events center, kitchen, restrooms, nursery, and classrooms. The design of this building utilizes extensive day-lighting, high ceilings, and a pitched roof to emphasize the spirituality of the building. Second, a historic wood-framed church will be moved from the congregation’s old site to this new location. The church will serve as a special events center for weddings, funerals, baptisms, receptions and other similar events. It will be integrated into the new site, and a plaza will connect it with the new church. Lastly, the project will include phased development. The new church site is approximately 10 acres, but only a small portion will be utilized in the initial phase. The remaining parts are marked for future growth, should the congregation need to add more classrooms, multipurpose space, or parking. The land could also be developed for outdoor events such as youth sports groups.
