Construction Finishes On New Hope Church

Posted: Updated:

The grand opening of New Hope Church in Williston was yesterday. It has been a long road to finishing the project, but a lot of people are now enjoying it.

A lot has changed in the last couple months at New Hope Church. In February, the outside of building looked like a work in progress.

“We're pretty excited about the opportunity to have this come together,” says Pastor Chris Swarthout. “It's been a long process of dreaming, talking and praying. And believing that God was going to work this together. We're pretty excited about finally seeing it.”

When you walk in the doors, it looks different than a couple months ago. There is a playground that has been a big hit with the children and also the parents.

“We love that it gives us a chance to let kids go and do what they like doing,” says six-year member Henry Heck. “They like playing, and it gives us the chance to talk and get to know other people. That's a huge part of this church."

The new space for worship is one of the areas you can get to know people. It has also changed a lot since the start of construction, and now members can enjoy service inside or outside the room.

“Two weeks ago, we had lunch with a man from Liberia and a man from Fiji. I never thought that by moving to North Dakota. I'd be meeting people from all over the world," says five-year member Curt Small.

With the construction finished, the last two Sundays have had the most people come to service. Now, the renovation will start in the old area.

There is no timetable for when construction will start, but members hope it will be soon.
