Zion Lutheran Church

Walburg, Texas

The historic church in Walburg, Texas is in need of an enlarged sanctuary for its growing congregation. The existing church, constructed in 1959, is undersized for the current worship attendance and liturgical worship functions. The narthex is undersized as well. The expansion will incorporate a significant portion of the existing historic sanctuary to be converted to a large narthex and a new 550 seat worship space that reflects the Lutheran liturgical arrangements with focus on the altar and central cross. An immersible baptismal font will be placed at the entrance to the worship area. The new worship space will be similar in design and complement the existing historic sanctuary in form and material. Historic art glass will be preserved and integrated into the new design.
