WAYZATA COMMUNITY CHURCH
Master Plan, Renovation and Addition
Wayzata, Minnesota

By the early 1990’s, the congregation at Wayzata Community Church had outgrown its church and related facilities. The sanctuary that seated 220 needed to be replaced, and new fellowship hall and classroom spaces were of high priority.

The existing sanctuary was reorganized to serve as a gathering space that opens into the new sanctuary for 620. Care was taken to preserve the Georgian Colonial detailing throughout the remodeled and the new structures.

The new sanctuary features a barrel vaulted ceiling to match the original sanctuary. It is accented with six dormer windows. An oculus beneath the rooster-capped cupola highlights the new chancel and it also contains the sound speakers.

The success of the new worship space generated a great deal of enthusiasm at Wayzata Community Church so that additional funds were raised to build new educational facilities.
