First Baptist Newport
Currently under construction, this project includes the main building with a covered drive through canopy.
The building, consisting of 20,809 square feet, includes a large two story fellowship entry lobby; administrative offices; classrooms for adults, youth, children and nursery; a preschool weekday program; commercial kitchen and serving area, bookstore and library, and a flexible worship area that can be used for traditional Sunday services or for multipurpose training, banquet, and fellowship events.
A future 6,225 square foot structure is planned to be used for recreation or youth assemblies.
In addition to site parking, an outdoor prayer garden is provided on the five acre site. The site affords a 360 degree panoramic view of the community it intends to serve. The unique steeple feature should be visible from miles away.
Community Tectonics also provided a master plan for a future chapel and expanded classroom and worship space.
