Update: May 1, 2019
We have Concrete!

March 7, 2019

Update from the Building Committee:

Visible Progress!  If you have been around the Social Hall construction site this week you have seen activity.  The pad is actively being prepared to accept the accept the foundation.  As one might imagine a lot goes into the pad before it is covered in concrete.  The purchase order has been issued for the concrete and the concrete block so things will soon start to take shape.  We are attempting to put together an opportunity to place small notes containing prayers, scriptures, and or best wishes into the base of the foundation once the block work has started. More to come on that.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Dallas 1 is completing work on the retention pond and all grading is expected to be completed by Friday, December 21.  Next the McCullagh and Scott contractors start their prepping of the building pad.  Plumbing, electrical, and forming are all expected to take several weeks.  A lot of things have to be completed and inspected before the concrete can be poured.  
Things are moving forward!  Please direct any questions directly to me at 


December 5, 2018:

Site work for the new Social Hall has finally begun.  Unnecessary concrete sidewalks and the bricks that were located in a patio area near Logan Hall have been removed.  The retention pond is being enlarged and the dirt is being relocated to the building site for necessary fill.

Please contact me with any questions.

We had a demolition crew on site this week!  They started demolition of the old counter in the sanctuary entrance area.  They are also removing some of the ceiling tiles and some acoustic tiles. They will start erecting new walls within a few days.

Pray for productivity and safety for all the workers.

Wednesday, November 28 a pre-construction meeting was held which was attended by Joe Kuebler, Chris McCallister, Tim Ashcraft, Pastor Jamie, and David Lennon from McCullagh and Scott.
The Site Permit is in hand with official start date from Dallas 1 (the subcontractor) of December 17.  It will take approx. 30 days of site work to be building pad ready.
The Building Permit:  In the most recent comment from Hillsborough County, they have required that a “licensed gas contractor” draw the exact location of the gas line routing inside the Social Hall (not necessarily the norm).  That has been requested and will be submitted by McCullagh and Scott upon receipt.  In all the building permit should be issued in 30 days.  This is not expected to slow the project as the site work must be completed first in any case.
The rest of the meeting was spent laying out and verifying the policies and procedures to be followed by both parties during the construction period.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

So Why Is Nothing Happening With the Social Hall? 

Things actually are happening however not on site.  McCullagh & Scott (our Builder) is working through a process with Hillsborough County to get the proper permitting that is taking a bit longer than anticipated.  It is anticipated that the County should have everything needed within 2 weeks and grant the permitting.  The plan is to set the building pad first as site work begins to enable building construction to begin more quickly.  The most positive thing thus far has been getting the old social hall demolished prior to the start of school.

Building Committee – Master Plan Update, June 2016
June 28, 2016

This month, the building committee unveiled the Master Plan for the church campus, and the implications for our future in being able to make more and better disciples of Jesus Christ. The key church staff and leadership unanimously approved that we move forward with this plan into the next stage. As of this writing, the contractor and architect are working up actual building plans and doing site plan research. Joe Kuebler has been presenting these plans to small groups, Sunday School classes, and others in order to field questions and concerns from the congregation. If you would like him to present to your group, or ask any questions, please contact him at .


The Master Plan was created to project how to best use all the space we have on campus well into the future, in order to make sure we don't limit ourselves by building a building in the “wrong” place.

The basic floor plan for the ground floor. It features a full commercial kitchen, Men's, Women's and Family restrooms, an elevator, and a “resource center” to aid in outreach to the community. The three spaces to the North (left) are flexible spaces with their use to be determined. 

The basic floor plan of the Second Floor. It features shower facilities, bathrooms, and multiple class rooms. Ample storage is provided for on the floor.
