Finally, Our First Church!

Finally, Our First Church!

by St. Augustine, Rocklin

After six temporary homes spanning 22 years, the members of St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church in Rocklin have begun construction of their First Church. The groundbreaking rite took place Saturday, January 19, 2013 on the Church’s property.

The first tractors rolled in on July 29, 2013. Progress…from the pouring of the foundation…to the walls going up… to the raising of the 5,000+ pound beams.... has been a thrill to watch. The Rt. Rev. Barry L. Beisner was on site to witness a very large crane raise two very large beams, which were set in place by our competent construction crew.

Construction is under the supervision of Tilton Pacific. CEO, Jim Tilton, is also a member of the St. Augustine congregation. The building is 8,000 square feet and includes a sanctuary to seat 250 people and a gathering space surrounded by offices, restrooms, a kitchen and classrooms. We plan for occupancy early 2014. The Rev. Liz Armstrong and the Build the Church Committee have worked tirelessly in organizing and facilitating this effort.
