New Church Timeline

  • Our Church construction activities could not escape the harsh winter weather in February as we lost approximately 1-1/2 weeks of schedule due to the snow and ice.  However, Asthon Wynne got back on track to complete all pier drilling, finish out the retaining wall along the creek and install all of the underground utilities.  Forming for the foundation concrete work is in its last stages to complete, and as soon as we receive a mechanical buy-off from the City of Euless Engineering department for the undergrounding plumbing lines we will be able to pour the foundation.
