Bethel Free Reformed Church required an expanded facility to accommodate the growing needs of young families in the congregation.


The new sanctuary provides 228 additional seats and vaulted ceilings combined with glazing to allow natural light to penetrate into space. A walkout basement configuration provides the lower level fellowship hall with exceptional views of the mountains and a large amount of natural light. Alvin Reinhard Fritz Architect Inc. met this architectural challenge by implementing the functional objectives of the church while addressing the aesthetic considerations with expertise and finesse.
