Emanuel Lutheran Church

Nearing their 75th anniversary, Emanuel Lutheran Church was destroyed by fire.  It became a retrospective time for not only replacing their lost church but to envision future growth and building expansion.  AustinCina Architects created a master site plan that retained the existing parsonage as part of Emanuel Lutheran’s Phase 1 sanctuary replacement, as well as future admin offices, Sunday school classrooms and multi-purpose room.  From the ashes, the Church’s bell was recovered and restored to become, once again, a beacon of the community.

Status: Phase 1 Completed in 2003

Size: 6,062 square foot church addition
