If we can create an outdoor fellowship space (deck or terrace) that serves as a transition between the inside and outside, we can extend the life of the congregation into nature and into the neighborhood. A deck or terrace could be a place where we gather to picnic, watch movies together, and provide live music for ourselves and neighbors. A gazebo or pergola could enhance our ability to rent our facilities and provide a focus for ceremonial use (weddings, blessing of the animals and other worship opportunities). It would lessen the image of our church as an isolated building on a hill and create a sense of invitation.
