Following a master plan process to develop a long range plan for future expansion and renovation, First Baptist Church of Winnfield identified their ministry to youth as having top priority in the first phase of construction. The project included completion of a second floor shelled space into a youth activity center, completion of a third floor shelled space into a youth worship and education department, and the renovation of an adjacent gymnasium to support the youth ministry.
The youth activity center contains a snack counter, dining and activity area, game table area, resource library, student study area, and toddler indoor play gym. The adjacent second floor gymnasium was renovated with new flooring, wall finishes, and is now connected to the youth activity center. The new youth worship and education center on the third floor includes a centralized production space for joint worship, performance stage, a/v control station, and seven small group classrooms.
