Lake Elmo, Minn.
Master planned to celebrate its beautiful setting on pastureland, rolling hills and wooded area, the Rockpoint Church design blends the facility into the countryside while bringing to life its theme, “Celebrating God and His creation … Connecting God to His people.”
Accommodating contemporary worship services, theatrical dramas, special events and national music acts, the state-of-the-art sanctuary enhances acoustics, visibility and space, with audio-visual equipment distributed throughout for simultaneous viewing from the congregation and stage. To accommodate multiple groups and diverse activities, Rockpoint also features four separate gathering spaces, including a space designed specifically for teenagers, a café and children’s ministry area. Outside, a meandering path follows the hills and the pastures, ending near the woodlands at the church building.
