Growing Together

Growing Together… Stepping out in Faith

St. Pauls Master Plan- Picture 1

Building upon the Legacy

Our prayer is that we are transformed from glory into glory: as individuals and as a parish. Over the past several years, St. Paul’s has seen incredible growth in members but also in depth of ministry and mission. In response to the growing needs within our parish and within the community at large, St. Paul’s has adopted a master plan that will help address those needs. In the end, St. Paul’s is the people and not the bricks and mortar. At the same time, we must remember that our facilities are tools of ministry. St. Paul’s is seeking to be a good steward of our resources and of the legacy we have inherited by laying the ground work now for future needs. As we prepare to embark on this journey, your prayers are invited. Look for more information to come as we continue growing together and stepping out in faith with this endeavor.

 

Growing Together… Stepping Out in Faith

In fall 2016, St. Paul’s embarked on an exciting capital campaign journey of “Growing Together…  Stepping Out in Faith.” This is just one step towards realizing the possibilities God has in store for St. Paul’s. The master plan as a whole will be completed in multiple phases over many years.

Building Update: September 5, 2017

As many have heard, we received a lot of damage from Hurricane Harvey. No one thing was critical, but added together makes it significant. A claim has been made with insurance. We will not know for a week or more on what the settlement will be. However, Paradigm, MCT Sheet Metal, and CLC Roofing are all helping to full assess next steps. With that said, the parking lot and exterior work on the Parish Hall were the first items to be addressed. As these things will not take precious resources away from the recovery efforts throughout Houston, we are moving forward with very little delay.

Building Update: August 15, 2017

The Guaranteed Maximum Price contract has been approved and signed by the Vestry. Construction is slated to begin on Tuesday, September 5th. Therefore, please join us at the 10:30am service on Sunday, September 3 as we dedicate the construction project to the glory of God and pray for all those that will work on the project.

Building Update: July 17, 2017

We are no longer looking at a July construction date. The guaranteed maximum price (GMP) was presented by the contractors in late June, but the cost had gone up too substantial from the last round of projected costs. Therefore, we are working with the General Contractors to get the price down to a more reasonable level without cutting back the scope of the project either. A big thank you goes to Alan Cooke for his work in this area.

Building Update: June 12, 2017

As we get closer and closer to the expected construction date in July, we thought we would share a little picture surprise… Look for this stone backing to be coming to an altar wall near you!

Building Update: June 5, 2017

Our Architects, Merriman Holt Powell, haves submitted the design documents to the City of Katy for final approval on Monday, June 5. Our contractors, Paradigm, are finalizing the Guaranteed Maximum contract for the Vestry’s approval later this month. Finally, Amegy bank is putting everything together for the bridge loan. All this is to say, everything is coming together and we remain on target for a July construction start date.

Building Update: May 2017

It is hard to believe we now stand a little over a month out from the start of constructions. Per a conversation with Patrick, our project manager from Paradigm, we are slated for a July 10th start date. The architects were supposed to submit the building documents to Paradigm by May 26th. Paradigm will confirm their numbers and create a construction schedule for the final contract by mid-June.

Building Update: May 2017

Although a lot is happening behind the scenes with the architects creating the building documents, not a lot of visible progress has been made. That is of course until this last weekend when a group of men came out to demo the old garbage bin and smoker area. This is right where the new parking lot will go. After the new parking lot is completed, then the Vestry and Property Committee will decide where to put locate these items in the future. We remain on target for a July construction state date.

Building Update: April 2017

On April 20, 2017, Fr. Chris, Karen Logins, Bruce McKee, Peter Parsons, and Flint Risien presented the building and financial plans for this first step of our master plan. We are happy to report that the Church Corporation of the Diocese gave their overwhelming consent for us to move forward. Look for more details to come on construction timelines. We remain on track for a July construction start date.
