DMTC Project Update

  • Expansion work is progressing really well supported by your prayers and good weather. We have completed foundation work including all digging and concrete. Brick work, steel fabrication and carpentry work are scheduled to begin this week. This week Integrity builders will begin work on installing a temporary wall between Madbaha and sanctuary as they need to access the existing structure on the East end of the building. Project committee and Executive committee met and decided to move the Altar and other equipments to the Fellowship hall. This will help continue our Sunday services without interruption and will also help the expansion work move quickly without any difficulties. From the upcoming Sunday onwards, services will be conducted from the Fellowship hall. All the arrangements are being done to move the existing Altar and other supporting systems to the Fellowship hall.

    You can view the construction progress by visiting the church website. You are also welcome to come and see the work in progress. If you have any questions regarding the project, please contact Project convener Mr. Vinod Thomas or Parish office bearers. Please continue to support the project through your prayers and generous financial support.
