Methodist Church receiving new roof, raising renovation funds

The United Methodist Church of Cazenovia is currently getting a new roof installed, with the hope that the work will be completed by the end of July. The church's stained glass windows have been boarded up to prevent accidental damage.

— To pay for the project, the congregation is financing the costs by borrowing money from the Methodist Foundation — rather than through a bank — but “that money has to be replaced,” Long said. Slow repayment of those funds will make it much more difficult for the congregation to hold programs and events, he said.

The church has secured a $7,000 grant to help with the roofing costs from the Sacred Sites International Foundation; to help raise the remaining money the church will do a community-wide appeal for donations, Long said.

Anyone interested in making a tax-deductible donation to the church’s preservation fund can send a check to the Cazenovia United Methodist Church, add “Roof Fund” to the memo line and mail it to Cazenovia United Methodist Church Roof Fund, 23 Lincklaen St., Cazenovia, NY, 13035. Donations and/or memorial donations will be recognized.
