Lord of Life Lutheran Church, located in Bluffton, SC, is growing again and beginning a second phase of expansion. In 2005, the church felt the strain of a growing congregation and came to Cogun, a nationally recognized design and build firm, for guidance. Together, the team came up with a master plan and completed Phase I of the project, a multi-ministry facility. This included finished space for a new worship area, administration, classrooms and a fellowship area.
In December 2010, the church broke ground with Cogun once again for Phase II – a new 500-seat worship facility following a comprehensive analysis of several variations of schematic design and scenario planning. “We’re excited for the Lord of Life Lutheran Church congregation and obviously pleased to be working with them once again,” reports Pat Kase, Project Consultant with Cogun. “This is the result of great collaboration and diligent effort at a relatively good time to be building.”
Located on Buckwalter Parkway in Bluffton, SC, the new 8,115 sq. ft. project includes a large narthex, and related site work, parking, and landscaping. The new worship space will connect to their existing facility. The building from Phase I will then be repurposed for expansion of administrative, classrooms and fellowship space. This new expansion for the church will allow them to continue to grow and share their ministry with the Bluffton community in a quickly growing part of Beaufort County.
