The primary entry way to the Church will likely be via the Atrium off S Fifth Street. The secondary entry way will be from Santa Clara which will provide easiest access to the Narthex, Sanctuary and upper floors if the Atrium gate is down.
The pictures below show these views looking into and out of the Church. There is also an Atrium view from the second floor balcony.

This morning the concrete pump was set up and ready to go by 7:30. Forms were checked for final level and the concrete truck rolled in shortly after 8. The teams completed the pour around 10:30. All under the watchful eye of Larry Smedley.
When the city planning deparment requested a change in our plans from pavers to poured concrete for the roof patio our structural engineer, architect and general contractor re-designed the roof deck which delayed the project and increased the cost of the new Church. The pour this morning used light-weight concrete poured over re-bar which in turn was supported by a layer of foam planks. The resulting concrete varied in thickness from 3″ to 5″. It was then stamped to provide a paver-like surface.
Finished the shortly after 10:30
As we remember past events we look forward to the future in anticipation of our new Church.
