GLOVERSVILLE - Live Saved Ministries, based in Amsterdam, has a new place in this city to call home. City Planning Board members gave the Christian congregation permission to renovate a building's interior at 35 and 1/2 S. Main St.
Approval by the Planning Board to improve the building's interior and relocate its services from a building at 11 W. Fulton St., off Broadway, will allow church leaders to handle increased attendance at religious services. Landscaping will add to the site's exterior appearance, and off-street parking will be available.
The church will lease the building from Two Great Guys Realty Corp.
Community outreach is a goal of the ministry, said Co-Pastor W. DeVone. Bishop R.K. DeVone will lead services as well.
The ministry was established in 1988, W. DeVone said after the meeting. Church leaders want to assist the needs of the city's youth and elderly, she said.
"We're there for the community, to help provide for the needs of the community," church administrator Barbara Jackson said.
Music Minister Theodore R. Judkins Jr. will oversee spiritual song selections.
It will be a welcoming congregation, too, DeVone explained.
"It is open for everyone and we do mean everyone," she said, "in fellowship with everyone."
