The Church of the Apostles, Atlanta, Georgia 2
Atlanta
The Sanctuary Seats 2,800 people, 1600 on the main floor and 1200 in the balcony. From the street in front of the rose window, it is approximately 240 feet to the top of the cross. The construction of the building took just over two years. The Sanctuary addition has a square footage of about 100,000 sq. ft. The published bid cost of the Sanctuary addition was near 17 million dollars. There are over 90 Stained glass windows in the sanctuary. The large windows on the west wall are renderings of the apostles. The windows in the stairwells and perimeter depict the life of Jesus. Lynchburg Stained Glass Co made these windows. The sanctuary has state of the art audio and broadcast quality television facilities. The carpet was made in New Zealand and is 100% wool. The slate under the pews was used as an acoustical treatment to assist parishioners in hearing themselves when they sing. Hopefully this will encourage participation in congregational singing. The orchestra area will seat 35 musicians. The organ is electronic, not pipe. It is fifty-four feet from the chancel to the ceiling. The screens are used in the service extensively for music, videos, and sermon illustrations. The plasma screens in the corridors are used for closed circuit television on Sunday.

More About Atlanta

Capital and largest city in Georgia, Atlanta is known the world over for its parks, professional sports teams, shopping, museums, and entertainment. One of the fastest growing cities in the United States, Atlanta has been commended by the Environmental Protection Agency for its determination to implement ecologically friendly policies. Unlike many other Southern cities, Atlanta broke with its historic Old South architectural characteristics and opted for a progressive modern style led by native Atlantan John Portman, who created the atrium hotel in 1967 when he designed the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
