Prosper United Methodist Church

Prosper, Texas

Prosper United Methodist Church has been at their current location since 1902. The church was interested in relocating from their current home of 122 years and seeking to develop a comprehensive facility master plan for a new campus on an undeveloped 39-acre tract of land located in the Town of Prosper, Texas. The initial scope of work included programming, master planning and conceptual designs for the phase I building program. The project had to consider the future growth of the congregation while recalling the rich traditions and history of the original church. Design priorities included incorporating new stained-glass windows inspired by the existing ones and the creation of outdoor amenity spaces to serve the church and surrounding community.

The proposed concept organized the campus along a linear circulation spine running parallel to an existing creek. The sanctuary and education components are configured around a large indoor /outdoor gathering space that will provide a vibrant activity hub for congregants and the community. Phase I of the Masterplan was realized in 2022.
