The facility boasts a one-stop activity center with a sports training and recreation area for those who want to work out; an aquatics area with lap and leisure water; and a family life and personal development area with a family lounge, teen room and short-term childcare area.

Larch Pine, a local deciduous tree that changes color in the fall, inspired the interior identity.

The center provides worship and performing arts education, family life and personal development, and sports training and recreation opportunities to the underserved residents of Coeur d’Alene. The 120,000 sf center is a campus of activities for every age group. The worship, community and education space includes a 400 seat chapel and multipurpose event space for banquets, meetings, weddings and community events.

Voted the most attractive building in North Idaho by the readers of Spokane Coeur d’Alene Living magazine.
