Church of the Incarnation is committed to downtown Harrisonburg. The best expression of their commitment was the purchase of a historical building downtown. While the former Parts, Inc. building didn’t have the most attractive façade, Blue Ridge Architects used the masonry shell as a “blank slate” for bringing transcendence into this 1950s era structure on a limited budget. The church also envisioned being patrons of musical and visual arts by hosting concerts and acting as a gallery.
