For almost three decades, principals at GFF have been designing creative learning spaces, places of sanctuary and comfort, and buildings which link the body and spirit in a cooperative, supportive environment.
Beginning in 1983 with a master plan for both the church and school, Bryce Weigand, FAIA, designed a parish fellowship hall, church offices, and classrooms which helped complete the church on the hill. Following that work came improvements to the pre-K school, a new gymnasium, the new 17,000 SF Middle School and a new Lower School of 26,000 SF. The Center for Creative Learning was dedicated in 2009. This 21,000 SF two-story faculty is linked to the Lower and Middle school, and “even more importantly it has provided a gathering place where the community can come together to build relationships,” said Head Master, Bob Kohler.
