What a week we just had at the CRK build site! We finally had good weather and were able to make a lot of progress.
Here’s all that happened:
Look closely as the picture we’ve provided with this update. How many different vehicles do you see on the property?

Progress has been slow due to the heavy rains, but now the entire site has been cleared. Parking lots are being formed and the building site will be shaped during the last half of December and into January. One of the results of the heavy rain that we have encountered is the deterioration of soil content where the Worship area will be as well as the eastern side of the Education Building. As a result, we will need to remove the poor soil and replace with top grade fill dirt. Lastly, the first concrete parking lot should be finished by the end of January. That area is very important as we need a hard surface to provide safe parking as well as house building materials, heavy equipment, and the office for the general contractor.

We are excited to announce the clearing process is nearly complete! However, we want to update you with several setbacks:

Grace Bible Church (GBC) was pleased to host a dessert for the Williams Creek Homeowners Association (HOA) on Monday, August 20, 2018. About 50 people were present, approximately 25 from each organization. The purpose of the meeting was to clarify GBC’s plan for the property and address any concerns that the HOA might present. Mike Gentry, vice-chairman of the GBC elder board, welcomed those in attendance and reviewed the history of and plan for the GBC property located near the entrance of the Williams Creek subdivision. Mike then addressed the concerns and questions that had been pre-submitted by Kristen Cox, President of the HOA. The issues ranged from traffic control on both Fitch and the entrances/exits from the property, lighting, noise, landscaping, mid-week use, pigs, etc. GBC expressed its clear desire to be a good neighbor and be responsive to any questions from the HOA. The members of the HOA and Williams Creek residents were very cordial but understandably curious about how GBC would impact their neighborhood.
HH Architects and Keys and Walsh Construction are in the final stages of the planning and bidding portion of the project. We expect the site work to begin in mid-to late-September 2018. This portion of the project will include tree/brush clearance, site leveling and initial preparation for the foundation. More to come!

It has been almost three years since the Creekside Campus launched at Pebble Creek Elementary and we are excited to provide you with our first official update on the Creekside building project. We are confident that the new Creekside facility will not only provide a permanent home for our Creekside Campus, but with increased spaces for worship and ministry this location will become a base of operations to serve our neighbors and send disciple-makers into the world.
The overall building project will have two phases. The first phase (Rough Grading) should begin in late August 2018 and is designed to prepare a large area for the construction of parking lots and buildings. Rough Grading should last 3-4 weeks. The second phase (Construction) is scheduled to commence in late September/early October (depends on City permitting schedules) and should last approximately fourteen months, unless unusually bad weather hampers the project. So, by late 2019 or spring 2020 we hope for our Creekside congregation to be worshiping in a 600-seat venue with brand new Children, Youth, and College classrooms capable of handling the explosive growth that we are seeing in South College Station.
Below is an aerial view of the site plan. It shows a completed view of what the Creekside facility will look like after all phases of construction have been completed as well as the facility's proximity to an existing oil field and the William’s Creek subdivision. The entrances to Grace Bible Church Creekside will be located on Williams Creek Drive, approximately .3 of a mile southeast of the corner of William D. Fitch Parkway and Williams Creek Drive. Stay tuned for more updates!
