Evergreen Church in Bothell broke ground Sunday on a new children’s add-on named the Orangetown Wing.

Pastor Laurie Esko said Evergreen has been actively trying to engage their quickly-growing community, and have been seeing greater numbers of families coming through their doors.

“We’re really pushing for inclusivity, particularly among the cultures. And we’re drawing a lot of families and doing what we can to support Bothell,” she said. “It’s just really important for us to be a part of the Bothell community, so everything we do is about that.”

Construction on the 6,000-square-foot structure is expected to be completed by the end of January, where it will house all children’s facilities for the church and community. Evergreen Church works with Northshore School District on events for children.

“We just decided that we needed to do it,” Esko said. “We’re just out of space, growing and growing and growing.”
