Built Upon a Rock


A worship facility is often a reflection of the community it serves. A beautiful architectural example of this is the newly renovated Mt. Hill Community Church nestled on top of Glassy Mountain in the heart of the Cliffs at Glassy residential development. Since being founded in 1869, this community church has served many generations of mountain residents, from early settlers to present day.

Trehel recently completed the expansion and renovation project which added more than 10,000 square-feet of space to the existing 5,109 square-foot church facility. Upon first glance, the renovated structure could best be described using the term “rustic elegance.” The use of timber frame construction, rock accents and muted colors allows the entire facility to blend perfectly into the natural landscape surroundings.

A new 243 seat sanctuary features a lofted ceiling with exposed timber beams, rock details, and handmade lighting fixtures. Other enhancements include, additional choir room and storage space, additional bathroom facilities, expanded Fellowship Hall with updated kitchen facilities, special event and gathering spaces.

Architect Randall McClain of Clemson, SC provided architectural design services for the project, and our Trehel construction supervision team consisted of Bryan Yoder, Project Manager and Rick Whitt, Project Superintendent.
