Beardstown UMC builds new parsonage
Beardstown First UMC had an Open House for new church recently. The parsonage, which conforms to The Book of Discipline, was constructed utilizing local vendors who had opportunity to showcase their skills.
The parsonage has hardwood and tiled floors, granite kitchen and bathroom countertops and a spacious laundry room.
The Board of Trustees and Parsonage committee took into consideration the construction workers which caused a delay in the targeted completion date. Recognizing that many contractors have to reduce their workforce in inclement and winter weather, the church and contractor agreed that it would be beneficial to for everyone to perform other contracted jobs that required working out of doors and to complete the interior of our parsonage in times of inclement or winter weather.
