As of the First Anniversary of First Fruits, the Celebration held on MLK Sunday, January 2016, there were several floorplan concepts under consideration, each attempting to incorporate current Catholic liturgical guidelines and an optimal seating capacity into the existing building space.

At this time, designs are centering around a roughly square floor plan with one or more major entrances at a building corner along MLK and/or along the street side, and a “fan type” seating arrangement facing the altar in one corner.
Updates on architectural progress will be coming soon.
