Ridgecrest Baptist Church Groundbreaking Celebration June 10th

Motorcycle Show, Classic Car Display

On June 10th at 2:00 pm, ridgecrest Baptist Church invites the community to the dedication and groundbreaking ceremony for their new 30,000 square foot Church/Family Life Center at 1731 Zumbehl Road.

The groundbreaking celebration will include food, a motorcycle and classic car display, information about the church and its future building phases. There will also be games and amusement blow-up equipment for the kids.

According to Rich Hood the event coordinator; “This is primarily a celebration party for our new neighbors thrown by the people of Ridgecrest. We Are the hosts, and the surrounding neighborhoods are the invited guests.”

In May of 2002, a master plan created by the architectural firm of Aedis, Inc., was presented to the congregation for the construction of their new facility on Zumbehl Road. Soon after, the plans for Phase 1 of construction were drawn and approved at a projected cost of over $4.5 million. In April of 2003, the church selected Wachter Inc., as the general contractor for Phase 1 construction. Actual construction is projected to begin some time in June of this year with completion projected for the summer of 2008.

Ridgecrest Baptist Church has been established in their present location on the corner of First Capitol Drive and Veteran’s Memorial Parkway for over 50 years. Their pastor, Dr. Patrick Campbell, has served the congregation for over 33 years.
