New Church Building
Messiah Lutheran Church, Burlington, Iowa

Project Overview

Owner Messiah Lutheran Church
Location Burlington, Iowa
Delivery Method General Contractor
Description New Construction
Gross Floor Area 15,600 SF

Carl A. Nelson & Company served as general contractor for this church originally constructed in 1960.  Since that time, we have completed several projects for Messiah Lutheran Church.

This building consists of a 450 seat sanctuary with special inlayed stained glass from floor to ceiling behind the pulpit giving it the iconic look.  At its highest point, the sanctuary ceiling reaches a height of 34 feet, 10 inches.  This space also includes a choir loft and organ area.

Flanking either side of the sanctuary, are two wings with curved walls for added architectural appeal.  The east wing houses a kitchen and social hall while the west wing is comprised of Sunday school rooms and a pre-school area.

Construction also included a sacristy, workroom, basement, offices and narthex.
