Family and fellowship are core interests of the Watermark Community Church in Dallas, Texas. As such, the ability to address its tremendous growth in child and youth ministries was seized with enthusiasm.
Space for the child and youth ministries was made available to Watermark after its interim worship facility was freed up with the creation of a new one. The church contracted Omniplan to convert the available space and accommodate the church's family programs.
The new child and youth ministry facility include 6,000 square feet of nursery rooms and 38,000 square feet of early education (toddler through age 4) rooms, organized as "quads." The facility also houses 39,000 square feet of K-4 space organized around a multi-purpose activity room.
A "tree house" animates the children's lobby space.
The layout of the spaces provides great flexibility while the aesthetics reinforce Watermark's family-oriented mission.
