First United Methodist Church Completes Construction

Located in the heart of downtown Maryville, Missouri, First United Methodist Church has a long rich history of serving this community. The congregation still worships inside the Sanctuary built in 1897! While space for worship capacity is still available, the church facility lacks several key features for modern relevant churches today. Following the Healthy Church Initiative study, the building committee identified a few key features needed. They were: identifiable entry, accessibility (elevator), gathering space for connection, renovation of children’s ministry spaces. 

With this list of needs, First UMC called on Mantel Teter to lead them in the planning and design process. As a downtown church, property is limited and space utilization must be maximized. A phased design solution allowed the church to meet all the key needs, while providing for expansion to allow a future fellowship hall that would also be used to host community events in partnership with the City of Maryville and NW Missouri State University.

A New Prairie Village Pipe Organ Finds Its Voice

By Suzanne Hogan, KCUR 89.3

Getting the pipe organ Opus 22 installed and settled in its new Prairie Village home at Village Presbyterian Church was no small task.

It's a massive instrument. Standing 24 feet tall, it takes up the whole back wall of the church. It weighs 17 tons, and has 3,600 pipes inside. Some of the pipes are as tall as 16 feet, while others are just a few inches. And each pipe has been carefully voiced so it sounds just right, a process that took 40,000 hours of labor.
