Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran at Shepherd’s Path
Prior Lake, Minn.
Envisioning a Shepherd’s Path village facilitating worship in all aspects of life, the community collaborated with the BWBR team creating a design evoking worship, outreach, and education with Shepherd of the Lake church at the heart of the community.
Providing ample space for all kinds of worship, an expansive Celebration Center acts as a central gathering space where all paths meet. Floor to ceiling windows accompany an array of trees, rocks and water inside in evoking a sense of the holiness of creation and making the space reminiscent of a park. A group room, preschool, and spaces for youth and adult faith formation surround, providing a calming, learning environment.
