I had forwarded this recent item to our local church, who just a few weeks ago told us we are theirs as far as they are concerned, but maybe under the lease option. Now she tells us that should they not arrive at a satifactory agreement, they are being told that too is out the door. A century of service with our church; it is simply maddening. The church loves us, but they cannot put themselves in a position of legal danger, especially as they too, as the oldest protestant church in our city, are struggling. The really sad thing of course is that the mainline churches are at the forefront of working with transients and the less fortunate. Our facility leases to a half dozen or more groups that serve the community social issues. In the next few days, or youth from all three very tiny groups will be helping make cards for seniors, and collecting food for local pantries.
