In addition to renovating and stabilizing the church, Epoxy Design Systems successfully incorporated relief designs in the walls and returns around columns, doors, and stained-glass windows that recaptured the look and spirit of El Bethel Missionary Baptist Church. Today, visitors can sit on attractive brick pews in the symbolic open-air church to enjoy views of the adjacent park.
