To Our Members and Friends

  Many of you know that we are in the midst of what has become a long court battle with two of our neighbors over our right to repair and use the access road to Four Quarters for which we have an easement, and that we had a trial in August of 2017 over these issues.

 At trial, our Attorney for the last 20 years experienced serious health issues and immediately withdrew from all legal practice. We are now represented by two new Attorneys (Passarello/Bucknum) in whom we have great confidence, and we have been granted another day at trial to present evidence.

 In his interim ruling the Judge did recognize our 1868 easement; however he preliminarily accepted our neighbors' arguments that:
 1: Our use of the easement is sudden and excessive;
 2: That we are not a "real" Church.
 Sadly, we believe that we may be once again encountering the kind of prejudice that we have previously experienced from Bedford County Government.

We hope to eliminate that possibility by extensively documenting the history of our church for the court.

Our trial date is April 18 at 9AM, all day in the Old Courtroom in Bedford.

We hope that you will consider joining us. It will be a long day at trial with many of your friends testifying, and we could really use your emotional support. We also believe your silent witness will be extremely important in helping to change the Judge's opinion of our church.

If you are planning to come, RSVP to the Church Office...and at the trial wear a yellow ribbon pinned to your lapel.

Please wish us luck and Gods speed!
We Shall Overcome!
