Falls Baptists in Idaho take step of faith and renovate during a global pandemic
IDAHO FALLS, ID – The members of Falls Baptist Church voted to hire a contractor for the renovation work on the church building on the south side of Idaho Falls in October of 2020. Although the Covid-19 pandemic had taken a toll on our attendance during that season, the church felt it was the perfect act of faith to renovate the building in the hope to be able to accommodate more people once life began to return to normal. The actual work began in December of 2020 with the majority of the construction completed in April of 2021. The renovation allowed us to expand our seating capacity from around 70 to 120. We were also able to build an infant room for nursing mothers and a new baptistry. We were so blessed to be able to utilize the skills of Nathan Harden, a Baptist Builders missionary who did the tile work in the new baptistry and built steps and handrail for a new door that was installed so that we could pass our final inspection with the county. We performed a dedication ceremony on the baptismal on August 15 where the church family gathered around and dedicated it to the Lord’s glory and purpose. On October, Sierra Heffron was the first believer to enter the waters of baptism in our new baptistry. It was a very exciting day for the faithful saints who call Falls Baptist their home.
