Community of Christ

New Church

Jonesboro, Arkansas


In 2004 Brackett-Krennerich Architects was approached by Community of Christ Church to design their new church on Highland Drive.  Design began immediately on the 8,743 sf wood framed structure.  Various options were looked at how best to utilize the large 3.19 acre site which had to be re-zoned from R-1 to commercial.  


The exterior was clad in 3 types of concrete block:  colored block, burnished block accents, and split-faced block in an ashlar pattern.  E.I.F.S. was also integrated into the exterior design which had an asphalt shingle roof.  The interior housed a sanctuary, conference room, foyer, restroom, kitchen, fellowship hall, and classrooms.  In the foyer and sanctuary, granite tile, wood, and concrete were used as flooring.  Wood trim was used throughout to give the feeling of worship and natural light enhanced the ambience.
