Immanuel Lutheran Church of Washington

New Sanctuary

The project consists of a new Sanctuary building with a Choir Loft. The new building has a finished basement and the existing historic Sanctuary was renovated into a Fellowship Hall. A new south entry with Porte Cochere leads into a new Narthex. The new addition increases the seating capacity by two and a half times.

The exterior masonry detailing includes brick corbeling and dentils, spires, and limestone trim to blend the new architecture with the original 1882 church building. New aluminum window frames are sized to accept the existing art glass from the original church, and a new rose window above the Chancel elegantly compliments them.

A new pipe organ in the Choir Loft and custom Sanctuary lighting complete this traditionally designed church building.


The major addition to Immanuel Lutheran Church is one of the most appealing projects ever in the city.
