Impact for Lakeville

Since it was planted in 1975, Bethlehem has been committed to making an impact in Lakeville and the surrounding communities. In 1980, the first building project created space to accomplish the mission of this church. Then in 2005 a new building created even more space.

The need for more space continues. We purchased about 19 acres near Lakeville North High School where we can double the space of the current facility. Due to exponential growth we believe that now is the time to build again.

Keep reading below to see a timeline of our progress. The most recent information is at the bottom.

Watch the video below for an introduction to the Impact Campaign.

Pledge Phase

The donation goal which will enable us to achieve this project is $1 million. Other costs will be addressed through selling of the current Iberia property, partnering with an senior housing developer, and financing.

The 3-year pledge campaign is almost complete, but you can click here if you'd like to make a gift towards the building project right now.

Sale of IBERIA property

One of the main steps to transition to a larger ministry facility was to sell our property at Iberia and County Road 50. That sale was finalized as of October 1, 2017.

Starting on October 8 Bethlehem began to use Lakeville North High School's auditorium for worship services until the new building is complete.

Construction Underway

Construction has begun! The property is currently under development and will hopefully be complete by May 2019.

In the meantime, please pardon the mess! The construction process isn't so pretty to look at, but the end result will be a beautiful property with dozens of new trees that compliment the beautiful neighborhood we're in. We think you'll love it!
