Building Update

building update #9

Ladies & Gentlemen, we are live!

Yesterday, we received our Certificate of Occupancy and today we are moving stuff in. T minus 4 days and counting till we hold our first service in our new space! We'll see you Sunday, here at 6300 San Mateo Blvd. NE, Ste. F-1, 87109. We are in the shopping center located at the northeast corner of San Mateo Blvd. and Academy Rd. between Petco and Dollar Tree. There is ample parking behind the space. We would encourage you all to park behind the space to leave enough spaces for first time guests.

 Pretty self-explanatory!

slight delay...

New City Family,

We will NOT be at our new location this Sunday, March 8.  We WILL be meeting at Mission Ave. on March 8.  The service times will remain 9:30 and 11:00 AM until we make the relocation. We are very close to the finish line. The excitement is palpable. We have had some shipment delays of important materials vital to our opening. These are circumstances beyond our control, but we are learning to trust God and to be patient.

This Saturday, March 7 we will have a prayer walk and Kids’ City open house from 4 to 6 PMYou will be able to scope out the new place and pray over it.  It’s an open house, so feel free to stop by between 4 and 6 PM for 20 or 30 minutes. I am very excited for you to see everything!

The Lord is very good and his timing is perfect. I will see you at the new place (6300 San Mateo Blvd. Ste. F-1) on Saturday night and at Mission Ave at 9:30 or 11:00 AM on Sunday

building update #8

in the home stretch!

We signed the lease for this project almost 1 year ago to the day. Now, all that remains is a few finishing touches, a few final inspections, and everything that goes along with moving into a new home. As we wait for the final inspections, here are a few pictures of the progress to whet your appetite!

building update #7

so close I can taste it...

Well, actually, I think I'm tasting construction dust. It's hard to believe that we could be in this space in a matter of 2 weeks. March 1 is our tentative move in date, though that might be pushed back to March 8. February 22, next weekend, could quite possibly be the last time we have to set up and tear down in a temporary space. Maybe the anticipation is so thick I can taste it. We all can. Please be praying for your friends that need to know Jesus and please pray that we can stay on track and get in by March 1!

building update #6

It's been too long, New City...

Sorry there has been a lag in building updates. We have made some major progress in the last month. So much so that we are a few short weeks from wrapping this project up! Please keep praying that:

  • God will bring lots of people to himself in this new space.
  • The New City leaders will be sensitive to God's leading as he guides and develops our church.
  • God will provide all we need for the upcoming move.
  • God will guide us as our involvement at Mission Ave changes shape, but not intensity.

most of the framing is complete

The contractors have been making quick work of the interior framing. Plumbing will start this week and the HVAC ductwork should follow soon after. Please be in prayer for this process and for the people who will come to know Jesus in this place!

construction has begun

Just a quick one. Framing is underway and most of the prep work/demo is complete. The remaining bids are rolling in and we're finalizing a couple of potential change orders. Keep praying, New City, and dreaming of what God's going to do in the coming years!

The long-awaited construction on our new space has finally begun! We took possession of the space form the landlord yesterday, and today, our contractor began demolition and prep work for framing! We'll keep you updated on the building progress here on the website. You can click "building update" on the righthand column of the news | events page on our website. Below are a couple of photos of the current progress. Thanks for your generosity, New City! These are exciting times!
