2004: The Park Church Beatties Ford is Established
In April, the first service in the new church, University Park Baptist Church II, located at 6029 Beatties Ford Road was held. Members entered into the new church on Easter Sunday, following a weekend of celebration that included the unveiling of a cross sculpture by world-renowned artist Richard Hunt. The new location seats a capacity of 2,500. It features a bookstore, Family Life and Wellness Center, audio and television production rooms, nurseries, and many other services to meet the needs of the members and the community. The design of the facility was based upon who “The Park”, as it was fondly called, was as a church and what God called its members to do for the kingdom in their community, throughout Charlotte and beyond.
