Rossville Congregation Selling Church


Members of the Rossville United Methodist Church will auction their century-old building at 10 a.m. today, as they prepare to erect a new church on the same site.

Also being sold are an educational wing added to the church in the 1950s, a house on property south of the church, pews, lectern and other furnishings that won’t be used in the new church, a news release said.

The church will move the educational wing and house, at the buyer’s request. Otherwise, buyers have 30 days to move the buildings.

Members of the church recently accept¬ed final architectural plans for the new building. Ground-breaking is expected to be this fall.

Zion Church Builders, Zion, Ill., will build the church. The project is expected to take nine to 12 months, with an esti¬mated cost of $312,000 for building and furnishings.

The building will have 7,830 square feet, all on ground level, including a 1,380-square-foot fellowship hall. The sanctuary will seat 150.

The last service in the old church was Sunday. The congregation will meet in Rossville High School while the new church is built.
