Since late August, the second phase of work has begun in earnest and continued non-stop. The floor was excavated and graded, and brought to the proper height in order to prepare for the installation of the over 3,500 feet of electrical conduit that was run. Conduit was run into the future basement, which was excavated to provide room for the future restrooms and infrastructure rooms. Access was cut under the sanctuary floor for plumbing and heating ducts.

Once all these preparations were completed, stone was put down over the conduit and compacted, in order to bring the floor to the proper level before the installation of the PEX tubing which will provide radiant heat in the church. After that, the new concrete slab will be ready to be poured, hopefully in time for Christmas!

Part 1 of Phase II will provide a 6” thick, structural concrete slab to the church’s narthex, nave, sanctuary, and basement as a foundation for the subsequent steps in Phase II.  
Thank you for your generous support in these difficult times for the Church as you help build a stable home for the Institute in the United States, making visible the reign of Christ the King in all things!

The total cost of this first part of Phase II is $765,000.
Would you like to invest in this important project to help ensure the stability and growth of the Institute in the United States of America?  We need your help!
With your generous help, we hope to complete Part 1 of Phase II by December 2021 and continue with Part 2 before year’s end.
You are helping to build a true throne for Jesus Christ our King in the heart of America.  May He, whom you honor with your offering in faith, bless you abundantly and protect you in these turbulent times!  Together, let us put Christ's house first. 
"Seek first the Kingdom of God and His justice, and everything else will be provided for you."  
Matthew 6:33
