[From Jim Wilson, Assistant Pastor for Operations]
We’ve been doing a lot of measuring around here in the past few weeks! Every few days a person with a tape measure shows up and examines a different piece of our building while taking careful measurements. Plumbers, electricians, steel workers, and civil engineers are just a few of the measurers. The architect completed all of the plans and passed them to the builder, who tells us that we are waiting for the city of Killeen to issue permits.
Suddenly, Tuesday, February 9, materials and machinery appeared! Woohoo—there really is going to be construction!
Step 1: Awnings constructed over the north and south doorways in the breezeway will give us protection from the elements during and after construction.
Step 2: The A/C condensers in the breezeway between the buildings will be moved to the roof of the main building to enhance the breezeway and decrease noise.
Step 3: A double glass door will be installed at the rear of the sanctuary on the east side of the main building.
Steps 4-???: Construction of the new addition begins on the front of the building.
One Sunday you will arrive for worship and the normal entrances to the building will be blocked. That may be stressful since you will have to use doors on the back side of the building. Please pray with us that our plans to direct the flow of people into the buildings will provide safety and adequate care for our members and visitors. This is an opportunity for us to love outsiders and members as we assist each other in coping with the disruptions of construction.
