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

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.

Fountain Springs Church East Campus

Fountain Springs Church East Campus | Rapid City, South Dakota

Located in Rapid City, South Dakota and a member of Outreach Magazines 100 fastest growing churches in America, Fountain Springs Church had leveraged their present facilities beyond all capacities. The church recognized the hunger to hear the gospel in their community and realized that multisite campuses would assist in this mission. In order to accomplish this mission, two projects would be necessary: a new East campus location and a major addition to the existing West campus.

Mantel Teter was selected to lead the church staff team through our process of visioning and discovery in order to design ministry spaces that will meet their objectives, while containing both projects within the church’s established and shared budget. At the beginning of the process, the church also engaged an owner’s representative and a general contractor to partner early in the process and assist with cost estimating and cost control.

The East campus project includes transforming a vacant lumberyard building into a large Atrium/Lobby space to access a new 550 seat video venue Auditorium. Renovations will also provide an Auditorium for Children’s Ministry and classrooms for nursery and preschool. All spaces are balanced to the new worship capacity. Additional staff offices are also included with the renovations. The exterior of the facilities intentionally blends and matches the architectural styling and materials from the existing West campus.
