Chapel Construction Begins
Construction of the Rio Roca Chapel & Conference Center began on July 6, 2009. This 1,080 square foot sanctuary seats approximately 50 people for private services, performances, and weddings. It is situated overlooking the Brazos River. A walkway leads visitors past a conference center and a tall, steel fountain. Flagstone stairs step down toward the river into the forecourt, where the chapel rests on the west end. The chapel is constructed of stone, glass, steel, wood, and utilizes tension bars with turnbuckles at each of the bents providing bracing for the wall and copper roof. Completion of the chapel was done in October 2010.
