Theology, Architecture and Life



This booklet was printed for the September 11, 1970 dedication of the new church building for Church of the Saviour. Prior to this, the church had been meeting in the Coopersville High School Auditorium.

The booklet explains the theology and symbolism behind the design of the building, from the symbols found on the steeples, to the furnishings inside the sanctuary, to the architecture of the building itself.

The building met all the needs of the three-and-a-half year old congregation. It housed not only the main worship sanctuary, but also classrooms, offices, and kitchen. In 1979 the Center for Education and Community Life was added on to the south of the existing building to accomodate the new needs of the rapidly growing congregation. It included a gymnasium, nursery, larger kitchen and offices, and more classrooms. The old classrooms and kitchen were opened up into the sanctuary to provide more space for worship.
