We’re not kidding. This has been a roller-coaster but we have found an alternative light solution that will allow us to have our first worship services in the new building on Sunday, May 22nd.
Please note these important changes to our event schedule:
1. We will be having the Move-in Work Day tomorrow, 5/14 at 8am. Sadly, the event was deleted from The City, but if you were planning on coming and bringing something, please do. We will have plenty of work to do.
2. We will be having our Volunteer Training Night on Wednesday, 5/18 from 6:30-8:00pm. If you volunteer on Sundays in any capacity, please do whatever you can to come. We will have childcare.
3. We will not be doing a BBQ/Open House prior to moving in. We’ll try to do something soon after, but considering the whirlwind, we had to prioritize.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks for your understanding and support during this exciting time!
After a couple of weeks of slow-down waiting for door frames, the work at 8743 E Pecos Rd is hopping again. Most noticeably, we’re starting to see pieces of the OSB wood get installed. It’s a fairly involved process of sanding, staining, and finishing, but the finished product looks great.
Here are some of the latest photos:
Well, we’ve hit our first construction delay since the project began (some door frames coming in later than expected), but there’s still significant progress since the last update and the delay shouldn’t impact our April opening. You’ll notice that much of the drywall is up, the ceiling is painted out black, and the skylights are in. There’s also a lot of wiring work complete that you can’t really see. Once the door frames come in, things will pick up quickly again.
We’re still praying that we can get in a few weeks before Easter and we’re praying that God uses us to reach many people for Jesus.
In other good news, our Beyond campaign is almost half way to goal in terms of actual giving and continues to come in strong.
Check out the latest photos below:
It amazes me how fast things change over at 8743 E Pecos Rd for our new building. I’m told that the changes will soon be less noticeable as greater details begin to be worked on, but now I’m surprised each new time I visit. Below are the latest pictures.
Also, giving for the Beyond Campaign continues to be strong — we’re almost half way to our $500,000 when it comes to actual giving and, as of today, we have 11 months left. Thanks for your prayers and generosity!
Please continue to pray that the glory and fame of Jesus — not our own — would be the driver behind this step. We want people to meet Jesus, disciples to be formed, leaders to be released and churches to be planted. This is a key step on that journey.

The progress on 8743 E Pecos Rd and the Beyond Campaign continues to be significant and exciting. Every time I go over there, more has changed. As of yesterday, all of the ‘walls’ of the interior are up (at least in metal stud form). It makes it where you can really get a solid feel for how big certain spaces are and how the flow of the building will be.
Additionally, drywall has gone up in a number of places and most of the duct work is complete.
In the pictures below you’ll see a look at the admin space (drywalled), the view from the front door (note the 80′ wall on the left), a couple of looks inside ‘The Box,’ a view down the classroom hallway, and a view of the kids check-in area.
Please keep praying that God would use this space, and us as his people, to extend his gospel to as many people as possible!
Work continues to progress on 8743 E Pecos and the Beyond project, as more wall frames have gone up, much of the HVAC ducts are getting installed, and a few skylights have been punched in the ceiling. It is very cool to see the space change each week!
Also, having the work take place indoors allows us to keep going even when there’s inclement weather (though the fierce wind last week beat the heck out of our “Future Home of Second Mile” sign).
Soon many people will be gathering here to exalt the name of Jesus!
After months of planning, praying, and all kinds of other work, the building at 8743 E Pecos Rd is now under construction. It’s an empty shell that we are building out as a space for worship, hosting community events, and proclaiming the good news of Jesus to all who enter.
You can see that the framing for the interior walls is starting to go up, and you’ll also see a picture of the interior black ceiling lining that will provide sound absorption in The Box (for a look at the design of the space, click here).
