The United Methodist Church through the Liberia United Methodist Empowerment Foundation ((LUMEF) has embarked on a US$2million dollars project.

Bishop John G. Innis Saturday broke ground for the project, the construction of a three-story multi-purpose building.  The building, if completed in the space of two years, will provide other services to the church and it surroundings, authorities said.

Bishop Innis who spoke at the ceremony held on 12th Street said the construction of the building was through the auspices of the board of director of LUMEF. He said, “This project upon completion will help enhance the sustainability and viability of the various ministries of the church and services to our nation.”

“This project will help to double our effort to doing good to all of the people of Liberia who are or will be in need so that other parts of the church activities will all be good.”  “The educational youth of this nation will be, and is our property therefore, it is required of us to lend our support to this very important initiative.”

He said the church is a place of love and goodness, adding “members of this congregation should continue to show concern for street children, the needy and the disabled as well as the ageing.”

“Every Methodist should have love for the church and support the ministries and do good continuously.” The commercial building will be constructed on a land situated on the 12th street Cheeseman Avenue and will consist of a parking space that will accommodate about 80 cars, stores, conference hall and offices as well.

Bishop said the dream, vision and energy of moving the church forward by it financial sustainability are commendable. “The church is to propagate the good news of Jesus Christ as well as living the word of God to benefit everyone,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Board Chair of LUMEF Moni Captan has called on every member to make a long term contribution towards the growth of the church. “We will generate income throughout the years so that we can have something to turn to during the upcoming years,” Captan, former Foreign Minister of Liberia said.
