“Forward in Faith” is not just a financial campaign but a legacy for future generations. It is easier to think about the here and now because we are here now. In fifty years not many of us will still walk this earth but our children and grandchildren will. Rather than only striving to meet our current needs, we must also think of what we can undertake for the future of Bethel Baptist Church.
By working toward a building expansion we can serve children and families through VBS, AWANA, and Sunday School.
We can be missionaries to the lost by providing TCFMN with a gathering space as they seek to spread the Gospel to many Hindu families in the Twin Cities. We have the opportunity to expand and create the space needed for the Bread of Life to feed the hungry and witness to those who are also spiritually hungry. Let us look beyond what we are doing today and dream of how we can serve the Lord for generations to come.
In any of our expansion plans we commit to maintaining a message that honors and is true to the Word of God.
Our plans in this initial campaign include upgrading our existing building to give us a fresh look and allow our ministries to function more effectively – paint and carpet to make the classrooms more vibrant, cabinets and storage to help organize the rooms for efficiency and practicality. The addition of a multipurpose building is also planned. It will include a fellowship hall which can provide space for classrooms by using operable wall panels. A gathering space will also be built along with new restrooms and storage area. It may also be possible to rough in a commercial kitchen. All together this addition would be approximately 7,200 square feet.
