Community Hall Project

Since our Parish was founded nine years ago, we have made an incredible amount of progress. After purchasing the Church property in Leander, TX, we've completed the conversion of a portion of the existing house into our chapel, reconfigured the remaining portion of the existing house to provide additional space for our celebrations, and built a shed with outdoor kitchen. Our soccer field, volleyball court, and bocce ball court have provided entertainment for numerous events. Most importantly, our number of parishioners has grown. Everything that we have accomplished thus far has been made possible by the Grace of God and the support of our parishioners.

We are now embarking on the next phase of growth of our parish by beginning the project to construct our Parish Community Hall. The project will be split into three phases. This phased approach has been taken so that we can immediately benefit after the completion of each phase. Details on each phase of the project is available below. This project is not possible without the generous donations of our parishioners and supporters. We would like to thank those who have contributed and urge you all to support this important construction project.

Od osnivaja nase Parohije pre devet godina nasa male crkvena zajednica je postigla veliki napredak. Ubrzo posle kupovine naseg divnog imanja u Leander, Texas, organizovali smo I napravili prepravku jednog dela kuce u crkveni prostor, preradili ostali deo kuce u prostor za proslave I skupove, i napravili pomocnu zgradu za letnju kuhinju i pecenjaru, Nas fudbalski teren, igraliste za odbojku kao i teren za bocanje omogucili su druzenje I zabavu na nasim brojnim skupovima I proslavama. I ono sto je najvaznije, broj parohijana se stalno povecavao I danas se povecava, Za sve sto smo uspeli da uradimo u ovom kratkom vremenu zahvalni smo Milosti Bozjoj I nesebicnoj pomoci I podrsci nasih parohijana.

U ovom trenutku se spremamo za novi korak u rastu nase Parohije, za izgradnju  naseg Community Hall-a. Projekat ce biti izveden u tri faze. Odlucili smo se za ovakav pristup projektu da bismo imali direktne I opipljive koristi posla svake faze.  Vise detalja o samom projektu I projektnim fazama mozete naci u daljem tekstu. Izuzetno je vazno ovde napomenuti da ce ovaj projekat biti realizovan samo kroz darezljivost I pomoc  nasih parohijana i prijatelja crkve Sv Luke. Ovom prilikom se zahvaljujemo svima onima koji su vec dali svoj doprinos za projekat I molimo I sve vas da ucinite svoj deo I pomognete realizaciju ovog veoma vaznog objekta u zivotu nase crkvene zajednice.

PHASE 1

The first phase of the project will consist of building a 50 foot by 1000 foot steel covered structure. The structure will be built on concrete pillars so there will be no foundation or floor at this phase of the project. Once this phase is complete, we will have a 5,000 square foot covered area for our events. Additionally, we will no longer have to spend the Church's funds on renting tents or other temporary coverings for special events, such as the celebration of the Church's slava. Some example images for this phase are below.

Prva faza Cummunity Hall projekta ce se sastojati od izgradnje pokrivenog celicnog paviljona dimenzija 50 sa 100 stopa. Krovna konstrukcija ce biti postavljena na stubovima takodje od celika pricvrscenim na betonske temeljne stubove. Sto znaci da u ovij fazi nece biti uradjen pod ispod krova, vec samo srubovi I krov. Sa zavrsetkom ove prve faze imacemo  5,000 kvadratnh stopa pokrivenog prostora za sve vrste skupova I dogadjaja.  Sto znaci da vise necemo morati da trosimo skromni crkveni fond na rentiranje satora I drugih privtremenih objekata za specijalne skupove kao sto je nasa Crkvena Slava.  Za ilustraciju prve faze vidi skice.

PHASE 2

The second phase of the project will consist of building a pier and beam floor for the structure and ensuring that the final plan's electrical and plumbing connections are accounted for. Example images for this phase of the project are below.

U ovoj fazi se planira kompletiranje podne structure po sistemu pier-and-beam konstrukcije. Ovaj tip konstrukcije je izabran radi manje cene kostanja, mogucnosti da sami parohijani pomognu u njenoj izradi, kao I zbog lakoce provodjenja instalacija ispod poda. Vidi skice I crteze u prilogu.

PHASE 3

The third and final phase of the project will consist of building walls to enclose the structure and finish the interior and exterior space. Example images for this phase are below.

U trecoj I zavrsnoj fazi projekta ce se podici spolljni I unutrasnji zidovi, postaviti prozori I vrata, urediti prostor neposredno uz objekat, I obaviti zavrsni urutrasnji radovi. Vidi slike.

None of this could be possible without the financial contributions of our parishioners and supporters. Please support this project in any way that you can.
