St. Paul's Lutheran Church and School
Kankakee, IL

Previously housed in two separate facilities, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School underwent a multi-phase project to consolidate their functions into a single building on a new site. The first phase relocated the school and church offices to the new building. After the move, the existing school building was sold. During the first phase, the church building continued to be utilized for weddings, funerals, and the traditional Saturday evening service, but all Sunday functions were relocated to the new building. Worship services were held in the school gym and the classrooms were used for Sunday school. Additional support spaces were included in the design of the school to help with the church functions.

The second phase was the creation of the sanctuary, fellowship hall, and chapel areas. By connecting the two facilities at the office area, services are no longer duplicated. Other expansions included a fitness facility and additional classrooms.
