Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Expanding Opportunities

Today, King of Peace will present a proposal to the Standing Committee of the Diocese of Georgia. Their approval is needed for any borrowing of money and building. I will be traveling to Statesboro, Georgia with Bill Bruce, JoAnn White, Colby Stilson, and Robert Davenport-Ray. We will ask for permission to get a line of credit of up to $100,000 to give us the room financially to take on a two-stage project.

In stage one, we will hook up to the City of Kingsland's sewage system, replacing our currently overtaxed septic system. This is the biggest facility issue blocking not only future building expansion, but also increasing use of the church and preschool. This project is estimated to cost $30,450 and to take less than two months to complete.

We are also working on plans to add an office and meeting space on what is currently the back porch of the church. That project is still in the engineering phase, but is estimated to cost $68,300 for the 1,300 sq. ft. addition. The proposed floor plan is online at As shown online it has not been completed by an architect or approved by the State Fire Marshall's office and so is subject to their changes.

Beginning phase two depends upon our completing the sewage project on budget and taking care of minor leak issues in the gutter and roof without incurring major expense while keeping the church's offerings up to meet the church's expenses. If these indicators stay in line, we will be building more meeting room before the year is out. This is all your church working to follow A Vision for the Future we laid out last fall to accommodate our future growth in a way that is both forward looking and fiscally responsible.

The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor

    The Standing Committee gave approval to the plan and we will begin work on the move from our presently overtaxed septic system to the city sewage system as soon as our contractor can get to work.
