Connect*Give*Grow Update

This past Sunday the chair of our building team, Don Josephson, shared with the congregation an update about their work.  We thought we’d share the highlights of what’s going on.

-Our architects have been hard at work on detailed drawings.  They’ve met with pastors, staff, and the building team several times to plan out the new education building and modifications to the sanctuary.
-Rob continues to work with the architects and organ builder with the organ that is currently in Midland.
-Sammy and Rob continue to work on plans for helping to make some improvements to the FLC to help with the sustainability of our drama ministry.

We have a tentative timeline of construction.  The important word in that sentence is tentative because in any construction project, things could change.

Early September 2015:  Drawings for the buildings will be completed.
September-October: We will go through the permitting process with the City of San Antonio.
Late Fall: Groundbreaking.  Construction with the classroom building begins.

Early January 2016:  Worship shifts from the sanctuary to the FLC.
Late January:  The current organ (aka Penelope) is removed from the sanctuary.
Early February: Sanctuary renovations begin while classroom building construction is ongoing.
April-May: The Midland organ is dismantled, moved, and stored here at Zion.
End of May-Early June: Construction ends in the sanctuary.
June and July: The Midland organ is rebuilt in the Sanctuary.
End of August-Early September: Finishing construction over organ installation is completed.
Mid-September:  Construction on sanctuary and classroom building is completed.

We give God thanks for the hard work of the building team and ask for your prayers as we enter into the next steps.
