GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—Trinity Baptist Church celebrated the completion of a building expansion project during a dedication service and open house Feb. 2.

For 21 months Trinity Baptist Church worked to add 7,200 square feet to the building in order to expand the worship center and create a new children’s ministry center. The building project added much-needed space and renovations for the church, which has doubled in attendance since 2005.

To ignore the need for space would “stifle any future potential growth,” says Pastor Brett Boomsma. However, the renovated building “is not our goal,” he says; “it is a vehicle to help us respond to what we see and follow where our Lord has already begun to lead us.”

During a lengthened morning service, Trinity welcomed back former pastor Kent Pool to preach; Ken Floyd, executive director of the Michigan Association of Regular Baptist Churches, delivered a dedication prayer. An open house featuring food, fellowship, and tours led by children followed.
