Lifegate Fellowship, Humboldt’s newest church, broke ground on a new 9,300 square foot church in a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, Aug. 19.
The church is being built on a 2.4 acre site at the southwest intersection of Highway 169 and 16th Avenue North in Humboldt (south of Xtreme Auto).
Groundwork is under way, but actual construction of the facility will start in the spring. Lead Pastor Dennis Niles said the 70-foot by 130-foot building is phase 1 of the project. The church will be built with expansion in mind with plans to eventually add an educational wing to the south end and make the building “L” shaped.
Gronbach Construction is the general contractor and will be erecting an EPS (Engineered Panel Structures) building. EPS is based in Graettinger and is a highly efficient structure. Once the building is up, church members plan to do much of the interior work themselves. Read how the church got off the ground in Humboldt in this week's Humboldt Independent.
