This church could be torn down. Demolition permits have already been filed. Here's a WFAA video covering the news.

I saw the story on TV and read it in the Star-Telegram.  To the best of my memory, I think all of their buildings are new, and not historic.  If you look at the video, you can see the two structures are actually metal buildings.

I assumed that the building wasn't historic since I haven't seen a single article that identified it as historic.

The thread should be moved because it was placed under the heading, "Historic Buildings and Preservation".

The building gets a 4 month reprieve while the issues are sorted out:
