Join as we launch in TK High School beginning Sunday, October 6, 2019 at 10am!
What a crazy past couple weeks it has been on the building project front! We had everything lined up and steel on site for a mid-July start on the erecting of the steel building. Then, last Monday we learned that the steel erector we had selected took a different job and couldn't start on our project until the fall. We immediately went out searching for a new contractor and miraculously found a company who had a hole in their schedule and could begin this month. After a minor hiccup with permits, we secured that contractor and steel is going up this Wednesday (6/19)!
This is a major victory and a definitive momentum shift in our favor. It has been a whirlwind project with several steps forward, and several steps backward. But we're now finally to the point where tangible, physical progress can be made -- and you'll even see it now, too.
A couple things we're still ironing out: insurance is close to approval on the final budget, but continue to be in prayer over the resolution of this now over one year old claim. Secondly, with the fire and us not being fully operational as a church in Middleville last year, our tax status has come into question and we're actively engaging with local, and even State, authorities to rectify the unfavorable tax situation this fire has put us in. We meet with those authorities in July and hope to have resolution on this issue at that time - but it's out of our hands at this point.
