A plan to grow

We want more people to connect with our Lord as we exalt Christ, explore His Word, and extend His love.

Widening the Gate is a Northgate expansion and excellence campaign to improve our building and grow our ministries. Our goal is to strengthen Northgate's mission and raise $250,000 in a seven-month stretch of grace. The stretch will run from April - October of 2018.

  6. Updates to the front of the building

  7. Window replacement

  8. Carpet replacement

  12. Mission projects


  • Update all restrooms (upstairs and downstairs)

  • Add a "family" restroom upstairs and downstairs

  • Existing upstairs restrooms will be updated without changing floor plan. The floorpan for the downstairs restrooms may change slightly


Parking Lot Lighting

  • Existing parking lot lighting has had numerous fixtures fail over the years

  • The majority of the lot is currently dark after sundown

  • Many ministries meet in the evenings

  • Project plan is to update lights closest to the building, then reevaluate whether additional steps are needed


Expand Parking Lot and Entrance

Create a safer parking lot with more space in our lot and at our entrance to better accommodate growth.

Foyer Updates

  • Improve traffic flow in children’s check-in area

  • Better highlighting our mission statement and missionaries

  • Create a welcome area

  • Foyer flooring will come out of the “carpet” budget. We will use commercial grade luxury vinyl tile.


Projection Updates in Sanctuary

  • Upgrade projection equipment in sanctuary so that we no longer project from the floor

  • Speakers/singers will no longer block the projection

  • Clearly feature baptistery and cross

  • Clearer and brighter images


Updates to the front of the building

  • We want to improve the aesthetics of the stained glass above the entry doors.

  • Replace 6 broken colored glass panels

  • Repair or replace aluminum coil stock (metal frame between glass panels)

  • Scrape and re-caulk glass panels

  • Paint aluminum cross to magnify it

  • Restore interior back-lighting to illuminate colored glass

Window Replacement

  • Replace windows in sanctuary, fellowship hall & bathrooms

  • Use white vinyl, double hung windows in sanctuary and bathrooms including full screens

  • Fellowship hall windows will include tempered glass to prevent injuries and improve security

  • Energy efficient to improve heating and cooling costs


Carpet Replacement

  • Replace carpet throughout the building, excluding the sanctuary


Kitchen and Fellowship Hall updates

  • Add entryway door to eliminate unnecessary kitchen traffic

  • Focus on making kitchen convenient and comfortable

  • Heat removal and/or air conditioning

  • Evaluate major appliance needs

  • Organize – make better use of existing space



Install a light commercial grade playground on the west side of the building, along with the necessary fencing, mulch, and landscaping


New Sign and Tree Removal

  • Replace the sign with one that is more noticeable

  • Add a digital sign that can convey more than our name

  • Remove the trees that block our illuminated cross
