Northstar Baptist Church - Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

At the invitation of building committee member Chris Moore, pastor Bennett Sanderson, and the congregation, NC Baptist Men committed to assist the Northstar Baptist Church of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho in the construction of their first worship unit in 2011. Coeur d’Alene (pronounced core-da-lane) is the county seat of Kootenai County. The city is located about 40 miles east of Spokane, Washington and sits at the northern end of 25 mile long Lake Coeur d’Alene. With a population of 41,328, Coeur d'Alene is the largest city in the northern Idaho panhandle. The city of Coeur d'Alene has grown significantly in recent years in part because of a substantial increase in tourism. Missoula, Montana is 180 miles to the east; the Canadian border 90 miles to the north.

The congregation had been renting an old Christian bookstore and was ready to construct their first unit. The plan called for a sanctuary, classrooms, office space, kitchen, and bathrooms. From the beginning, it was clear that God was in this process. As with any endeavor of this magnitude, there were roadblocks that had to be overcome. Much prayer went into the process at every stage. Each obstacle was overcome.

For the second year, Ed and Helen Helms committed to and did a great job working with our teams. The Helms are from Lincolnton, NC. Fifteen teams, including eleven from North Carolina, one from Alabama, one from Montana, one from Wyoming, and one from Tennessee, came to help. NC Baptist Men would like to thank each volunteer who came to serve this summer. Many thanks also to the members of Northstar Baptist Church, who were gracious hosts to our teams! Our prayer is that God will use this congregation and this new facility to further His kingdom in the Couer d'Alene region.
