Calvary Baptist Church – Ball Ground, GA
March 2020 – One year ago, Calvary Baptist Church in Ball Ground, GA approached Hill Foley Rossi & Associates with a multi-faceted renovation program for its worship facilities. The church originally held its worship services in a small chapel building, but, with the help of HFR, the church now holds its services in a new, expansive 23,000 square foot multi-purpose worship and activity building. HFR assisted in programming the building with classrooms and support spaces that surround a large 12,000 square foot gymnasium. The proposed program partitioned the spacious room into two 6,000 square foot areas and created a permanent, dedicated sanctuary space for 500 seats off the main entry lobby. Because the church desired a more intimate worship experience, HFR designed an “in the round” platform with a connecting pre-function area to facilitate its existing circulation patterns.
dB Integrations arranged complete new audio visual systems, and GTP Engineering designed the mechanical, engineering and lighting. CBI General Contractors completed construction on a tight schedule in order for the church to hold its first service before Christmas 2019 – nine months from initial design meeting to construction completion!
On March 1, Calvary hosted a new worship space dedication service and commemorative celebration of 50 years of worship. Congratulations to Pastor Jeff Hill and the Calvary Baptist Church family as they continue worship in their new location!
