The historic Landmark Auditorium was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, a member of our Society and son of one of our Founders. It is recognized as one of the most innovative examples of church architecture. Saturday services are held in Wright’s original Landmark Auditorium, as are Friday noon musicales and a host of other events.
Inspired by Wright’s original work, the Atrium Addition was opened in 2008 boasting a Gold-level LEED certification. The 24,000-square-foot Atrium is home to our Sunday morning services, as well as a host of other events and activities. Along with the Auditorium, the Atrium addition is also home to our children’s education classrooms, our library, and a state-of-the-art kitchen.
