The Minneapolis-based, three-campus church, Bethlehem Baptist Church expansion plans continue with construction of a church building on 12 acres of land in Lakeville, MN. The building will include a sanctuary with seating for 664 people and room to later add a balcony that seats 300. Construction began this past fall with expectations to open in 2018.

Its south campus congregation of about 550 now meets at Lakeville South High School. Plans include a 54-foot tall cross outside with a gym, nursery and classroom space inside. Church officials are planning to add a balcony in the sanctuary to allow another 300 seats. Future expansion of the main building is also proposed, as is construction of a 1,400-square-foot detached accessory building.

Wells Contribution:

Wells Concrete manufactured and installed nearly 26,000 square feet and 78 pieces of architectural insulated wall panels with a thin brick architectural exterior finish. Additionally, Wells Concrete provided precast hollowcore floor planks at the balcony.
