The building was designed to harmonize with the existing buildings on the church campus. The brick exterior has a limestone band that continues along the adjacent building. The upper floor contains the sanctuary and connects with the remodeled existing building, which now contains meeting rooms, church offices, and a choir rehearsal room. The lower floor contains eight new classrooms, restrooms, and a fellowship gathering area. A new elevator provides access between floors and now links the entire church building with the exception of the Christian Life Center behind the main campus. The interior features a defined chancel area accented with four Tuscan columns and stained-glass windows. The chancel rail is removable to accommodate additional staging for church productions beyond the carpeted platform of the lectern.
