Major construction has entered Phase 2 at the United Church of Los Alamos at 2525 Canyon Road.
Work includes metal framing around the new entry into Fellowship Hall and the vestibule, sanctuary restrooms, coffee bar, new staircase to the sound booth, added parking and a “no-step” entry plaza between the CE Building and the Sanctuary Fellowship Hall and additional parking behind the Sanctuary.
In the Spring of 2012, work was completed on a capital campaign that raised $2.3 million for upgrades to the facility. The Phase 1 work in 2012 and 2013 was mostly in the CE Building, e.g., adding an elevator, sprinkler system and atrium.
The United Church of Los Alamos is the first church in Los Alamos. It grew out of the original Army Chapel after World War 2 and represents six Protestant denominations.
