Church Wants to Meet in Office Building, Town Council to Hear Request
Dumfries officials hear a request from North Stafford church now meeting at a hotel.
Grass Roots Christian Fellowship church wants to move its services from a Wingate Inn on Garrisonville Road in Stafford County to a space inside Elwye Building in Dumfries. The Town Council must grant a special use permit to the church to permit them to use the building, which houses commercial business.
A public hearing on the matter is scheduled at 7 p.m. Tuesday when members of the Town Council are slated to hear from the church, the town’s zoning administered Laura O’Dell, as well as business owners and residents.
A contact number listed on the Grass Roots Christian Fellowship website was not working Monday morning so we were unable to reach a representative for comment.
O’Dell was not immediately available for comment on Monday
According to a report written by O’Dell and presented to the Town Council, the church will meet at 11 a.m. on Sundays and at 7 p.m. on Thursdays, as well as services twice a month on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. and Saturdays at 10 a.m.
The church serves about 60 members who make up their congregation.
This wouldn’t be the first time a church has occupied a commercial space in Dumfries.
In another office building next to the Eleye Center, another church — The Greater Love Cogic Anointed Ministries – is advertised on the marquee of the building. When dialed, a phone number listed for the church on the marquee did not work.Send news and photos to Potomac Local
