Sanctuary Update

Building Update, June 2017

As you may have noticed by now, there is a lot of activity occurring where the new sanctuary is to be built. Construction work continues on the new sanctuary at a rapid pace. In the early morning hours of June 10th, the first of four concrete pours began. After the final concrete is poured for the chancel area, we will see the steel structure begin to take shape. Not as noticeable, but still critical to the overall project, is the ongoing site work for the new building such as drainage and detention areas for water and relocation of electrical lines.

Various committees have also been hard at work during the past several weeks making decisions on a number of items. The new organ has been ordered and is being built. Tile, carpet, and wood for the sanctuary have been selected in addition to the new seating (no more ministry of chairs!). Those who have given freely of their time and talents on these committees have asked for God’s guidance and direction that the decisions made will be pleasing to all who come to worship in His house.

Building a Foundation


As you may have noticed by now, there is a lot of activity occurring where the new sanctuary is to be built. Construction workers are maneuvering their trucks in and out of large piles of dirt. They spread it out, pack it down, wet it, and repeat. (Regrettably, due to the south
Texas winds, plenty of the dirt ends up on our neighbor’s property.) The
importance of this process cannot be overstated. This is the foundation
to the foundation of our new home for worship. This foundation needs to be solid so that it will last for generations to come. While the early stages of construction have begun, there are several committees that continue to meet and make decisions about items ranging from the style and color of our new seating, to the location and acoustics of our new organ. Our church family is very blessed with talented, smart, creative and willing members. As we are extremely grateful to those who came before us to shape who we are as a church,

it is our prayer that we shape the future generation in a way that is
pleasing to God. The players on this stage will change over time, but
the foundation built by Him will remain.

Groundbreaking ceremony

On Sunday, March 26th, First UMC McAllen broke ground on our sanctuary! It was a blessed day and wonderful way to cap off a weekend of service and celebration. God is on the move in the city of McAllen, and we are blessed to be a part of God's great plan for this city! To God be the glory!!!

Our Harvesting the Fruit campaign for our sanctuary continues and we are always happy to receive new pledges or one-time contributions to help make our sanctuary a debt-free reality! If you interested in contributing, just click the link below to find out how you can give online!
