Throwback Thursday - Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Woodstock, GA (1992)

FSF completed a new first unit facility with a 300 seat sanctuary, classroom wing, and fellowship hall for Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in December of 1992.  The total area was 5,900 square feet.  There is a theological meaning to the three arches in the sanctuary.  They represent the Father, Christ our Lord, and the Holy Spirit.  The arches representing Christ our Lord and the Holy Spirit have the organ speakers housed in them, as a semblance of them speaking out to us.

Myth Buster Monday!

Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day.  MYTH!  Mexican Independence day is September 16th.  What Cinco de Mayo actually celebrates is a victory by the Mexicans against the French that later colonized Mexico. This occurred on the 5th of May, 1862 in the battle of Puebla, when a group of Mexicans defeated the French army.

Tuesday Trivia!

Many people visit Six Flags every year, but do they know why it’s called Six Flags?  The name was inspired by six different flags that have flown over the state during its history.  Can you name these six flags?

FSF Friday Fotos!

FSF attended the CH Briggs Architect’s Night at Oldcastle Surfaces on Thursday night.  It was a hands-on event that included a plant tour and short presentation on ways to apply and use Corian.  We learned Corian isn’t just for countertops anymore and they have many different machines, molds, and tools to fit any project. 

They allowed us to put together sushi tables, play and create with Corian straight from the Thermoform machine, and mold serving spoons.  Thank you to the CH Briggs and Oldcastle teams for hosting such a unique event with great take home gifts!

Throwback Thursday - Christ the King Lutheran Church – Cumming, GA

This highly successful church in Cumming was a first for FSF.  It was completed in 1994 by “Mission Builders” of the ELCA.  This all volunteer group of retired craftsmen lived on site while the project was under construction.  It was so successful that partner Jeff Seeley was asked to speak at the yearly conference concerning the project in Chicago, IL.  #tbt #architecture
