Founded in 2003 by Buda native Robin Steele and about 30 other members, the church bought 10 acres on Lime Kiln Road in 2005 and converted a former warehouse into a church facility. PromiseLand San Marcos soon outgrew its building and added additional worship services to accommodate membership. It broke ground on an expansion in 2011.

The new $2 million facility will seat about 600 and is built with an environmentally friendly design that includes a rainwater collection system, Steele said. The original building was converted to classrooms, offices and a theater with inclined seating.

PromiseLand will break in its new home with a concert by contemporary Christian music trio Phillips, Craig and Dean at 7 p.m. Oct. 18. Tickets are $5 for general admission and $10 for reserved seating; a family pack of four tickets is $15.

The church also plans a grand opening celebration as part its regular Sunday mornings services, at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 21.
