First Baptist Church Powder Springs

As a suburban church with a growing congregation, leaders at First Baptist Church in Powder Springs, Georgia, recognized the need to create a space that was dedicated to their youth ministry. The church purchased a stand-alone building, which had previously served the community as a local library. The proximity to the church made this building ideal for the youth—giving them an area all their own. The new facility is named “Spring Street Garage” and is used by junior and senior high students.

As plans took shape, CDH designers employed a range of thematic elements to brand the space including the front half of a car, which was turned into a sound booth. An important feature of this space is its flexibility. Two large overhead garage doors containing clear panels are used to subdivide the area for small groups. They are raised for large group meetings, worship times, and when the stage is in use. Workbenches, toolboxes, tires, an over-sized wrench, and tools reinforce the theme of this area and the fact that it is a place where teens meet, interact, and get their own spiritual “tune up.
