Church makes offer to purchase Saxvik building

BISMARCK, N.D. - The Bismarck School Board is accepting an offer for the purchase of the Saxvik building, an old elementary school in northeast Bismarck.

The board voted to accept Inspire Family Fellowship's offer pending contingencies.

The Bismarck School Board heard presentations from two churches Tuesday, and both churches proposed a purchase price of $399,000.

Randy Upgren with Inspire Family Fellowship says the church is looking for a permanent location and wants to be part of the Saxvik neighborhood long term.
