First United Methodist Church of Richardson – Celebration Hall

Richardson, Texas

First United Methodist Church Richardson is located on an approximately 20 acre site located at 503 North Central Expressway in Richardson, Texas. The church recently expanded their existing campus to accommodate current and projected growth in various church ministry areas. Located in the heart of the campus, the Ministry Center is the organizational ‘hub’ that connects the various worship and administrative components under a single roof. Within it is a 500-seat Worship and Arts space, that provides a venue for contemporary style worship, theatrical performances, concerts and lectures. Celebration Hall houses a multi-purpose community gathering space and banquet hall on the first floor, and centralized administrative spaces are located on the second floor. A new Music Suite at the east end of the existing sanctuary provides needed rehearsal space for the choir and children’s music ministries, and offices for the church music ministry. The final component of the expansion is a renovation of the existing Family Life Center, consisting primarily of new worship and lounge spaces for the youth program.
