Building for tomorrow

Together we, glorify God as we worship Him daily, follow Jesus, and love our neighbor.

Since being established in 1947, Bergen Park Church (BPC) has experienced tremendous growth. From 35 regular attendees on Sunday mornings in the mid-90s to over 300 regular attendees present day, BPC is thriving and our impact is spreading.

At BPC, we take pride in loving and serving the people of the Evergreen community. We do this partly through our internal Children’s, Youth and Family ministries as well as by opening our facilities for local children, youth, and families throughout the year. During many of these events and occasions, we have found our current space lacking to accommodate the needs of our church and community. We believe this expansion will help us meet the needs of our congregation and community while preparing for the future.

Building Project Updates:

June 9, 2024

Thank you to those who attended our Building Expansion Informational Meeting on Sunday, June 9, 2024. We are pleased to share that we received 90% of voting members’ approval to proceed with Phase 1: Design & Permitting! Stay tuned for more information and updates along the way. Also, please continue to pray for this project and ask God how you and your family can be involved.

The Vision

Create a welcoming and conducive space to accommodate our growing population and thriving ministries, while following God’s direction and guidance.

The Plan

We expect the expansion project to take place in three phases:

  • Phase 1: Design & Permitting | 9-12 months (June 2024-June 2025) | In Progress!
  • Phase 2: North Addition Construction | 12-16 months (June 2025-October 2026)
  • Phase 3: South Addition Construction | Completion TBD

In addition to a feasibility study, our leadership team has worked closely with key stakeholders to understand the needs, desires, and realities of the planned expansion. To better meet the needs of our ministries, congregation, and community we’re proposing two additions:

  • North Addition – Multipurpose Room/Gym with classrooms, bathrooms, and storage
  • South Addition – Additional classrooms and meeting space, walk-out basement with amphitheater

FAQs

BPC loves being a multigenerational church family. We have seen rapid growth in the number of young families attending BPC. Our facilities are no longer meeting the needs of our Children’s and Youth ministries. When our current building was constructed in 2015 it was designed with a future expansion in mind. Fast forward nearly 10 years, BPC has experienced rapid growth and it’s clear that we need more space to meet our growing needs, while continuing to love and serve the people in our community.

The original members of BPC who built our current building dreamed of this day!

Bergen Park Church is currently debt-free having paid off the mortgage for the current building in 2022. Thanks to your faithful giving and good financial stewardship of our staff, we have over $300,000 set aside for this building expansion. We are committed to completing this building expansion without debt and are confident that God will supply the finances through the continued faithful giving of people who are excited to see Bergen Park Church reach our community for Christ. Over the next few months, we will be highlighting the need for more space for children and youth and asking that we all financially support the Phase 1 building addition.
