Presbyterian church pays PC(USA) $90,000 for ownership of structure.
The Rev. Leslie King said the $90,000 was a far cry from the more than $400,000 that the building was appraised for by an independent appraiser hired by the commission as well as a county appraiser. She also said it was not the commission’s desire to make it so the Hillsdale congregation was unable to do ministry. But she also emphasized that it was important to the administrative commission that the Hillsdale congregation recognize that they were receiving gifts of generations from the PC (USA).
After discussing their options, the Hillsdale congregation decided to accept the offer, and Johnston said a loan was taken out to pay the PC (USA), which will be on top of the original loan that was used to purchase the building.
From Hillsdale Church website: Free at Last, Free at Last! Hillsdale Presbyterian Church is free at last from the PC(USA), and have joined the growing number of churches with the EPC. The sun is coming up and it looks to be a greeeeat future ahead in doing the Lord's work. Come join us. Thank You Jesus, Amen
Editorial: It's all about the money, is the way that I interpret Rev. King's statement. or as the gamers say: "All your churches belong to Us"
