Kind Friends and Supporters,

Christ Has Risen!


Recently, with God's help and the help and contributions of parishioners and other caring individuals, we were able to purchase a beautiful acre of land on which to build a church. You can see for yourself, from the photos included here, what the land looks like. It's a lovely and conveniently located corner lot at the intersection of Oxford Trace and Rochelle Street in the 78240 zipcode, the same area where we are currently located. You can see here the photos of the land and the final floorplan of the church building.

We are now ready to begin construction of our new church building, and closed on our construction loan on April 16, 2020—Great and Holy Thursday—and expect preliminary construction work to begin within the next two weeks.

Our congregation has long been too big for our rented space on Research Drive. With our own building, our strong and growing community will have a solid base from which to reach out in works of charity and service as we live out our calling in the Gospel of Christ.

As we move forward with construction, we will still need to raise additional funds for fixtures and other finishing features to complete the building. We humbly ask you to consider a tax-deductible donation to our building project, and for your prayers as we trust in God's help to complete this church to the glory of His Kingdom.


Yours in Christ's service,

Priest Christopher Allen
