Then, things started rolling. An architectural firm (Opus 3, of Round Rock) was engaged, and plans were drawn. There was a ground breaking ceremony in May of 2000. A general contractor (C.E. Ward, subsequently renamed J.E. Dunn) oversaw the construction. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on October 29, with the mayor of Pflugerville and the president of the Pflugerville Chamber of Commerce participating. We started holding worship services in the building on November 5.
A special service dedicating the building to the glory of God was held on November 18, 2000. At this service we were reminded of the verse from Psalm 127, “Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it.” The new building is evidence that indeed the LORD has built the house, and the builders have not labored in vain.
Our church is extremely grateful to the talented and hard-working members of the Building Committee who shepherded this project to completion. In coming years, the Lord willing, we plan to move into a second phase of construction, for more classrooms, a sanctuary, and other space.
