Pathways for the Future
In 2007, the Forest Park Baptist Church developed a multi-phase building and grounds upgrade plan. Phase I of the Pathways for the Future project satisfied the vision to expand church parking. Phase II included the successful construction of a three-story main entrance addition on the south side of the Main building. As the new main entrance to the church, the addition created modern, temperature-controlled meeting spaces, and improved accessibility, including a new elevator, wheelchair ramp, and restrooms.
Phase III - Multi-Purpose Building
When the Lord prepares us, Phase III will consist of constructing a multi-purpose building with new washrooms on both floors. There will be a new kitchen, new classrooms, and a half-court gymnasium to go along with a walking track. The building will be built on pylons in order to make room for parking underneath the building.
Phase III will give the church much greater presence in the community. It holds great potential to expand our ministry not just to our congregation but also to unchurched youth and senior citizens of Forest Park and beyond.
