FUMC McAlester was located in a historic building in downtown McAlester for over a century. The building was not accessible to its elderly congregation and it was landlocked which impeded future programs that the church wanted to implement. They hired TriArch to help them master plan a new site that was located by the city recreation fields and a lot of growth of houses and families. TriArch designed 3 separate buildings that would be divided into worship, recreation, and education. Phase 1 completed the education and recreation building, with the church using the gymnasium to worship in until phase 2 is built. The building consists of a gymnasium, a commercial kitchen, a student center, children's area, adult classrooms, administration, and a parlor for meetings or events.
