Church members have had to contend with a barrage of harassing phone calls, at least one bomb threat and monthly protests across the street from the church's northeast Albuquerque headquarters, said Block. This comes at a time when the group is preparing a zoning appeal for its proposed purchase and renovation of Downtown's Gizmo building for a new headquarters and church.

The money to buy the building is in an escrow account. It had been listed for $2.2 million, but the sale price was not disclosed. An updated rendering of the proposed remodel (on page 7) shows an exterior with a more contemporary Southwestern design that features natural materials like stone and earthtone colors.
