Weeks 10-11: Truss, The Shed, & Roof Decking

Week 10: It takes a lot of truss to build a church Week 10 was dominated by truss – those things that hold the roof up. There are a lot of them! It’s quite the procedure: finding the truss, walking and guiding the truss, lifting the truss, and setting the truss were all steps in the process before they could be nailed into place. Then repeat about 150 times. The Shed The long-awaited shed was finished enough to be able to move the…

Weeks 8-9: Volunteers Get In on the Action

At 11 am the first bus took off a quarter mile down the street to the building site at 11120 W. Loomis Rd. Three busloads and over 160 people later, the groundbreaking ceremony started.…

Site preparation has started! Day 2 of site preparation and already the future church site has been transformed. Bulldozers, trucks and dirt make for some great entertainment. There is some temporary fencing around the perimeter, and the corners of the building are staked out.    

A Big News Kind of Week!

Loan Request – Approved Thursday we received official word that our loan request was approved for the total amount we requested. This is big news that means our building project can move forward as planned without needing to reduce the size of the building or make significant changes to the scope or timeline of our project. For this I am led to say with the Psalmist, “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever!”(Psalm 118:1). So…
