He said the church will not have to pay rent on the building for the first year in exchange for the “in kind” work to be done by the new church.

The building became county property when the Louisa United Methodist Church moved out of it and into a new building last year. The property the church is located on originally belonged to the county and the deed was drawn up decades ago that it would revert back to the county whenever Louisa United Methodist ceased to use it.
