Spring Hope pastor voices concern over Spaulding Auditorium rumors
A Spring Hope pastor came before the board concerned with rumors that his church was not paying their rent on Spaulding Auditorium.

Bishop Thomas Davis, pastor of Church of God of Prophecy, spoke to Commissioners Monday night during Spring Hope's regular board meeting Monday night. He questioned how rumors got started that the church was delinquent in paying its rent.

The church rents Spaulding Auditorium for Sunday services. In the past, they've paid yearly but started paying quarterly. Bishop Davis said he felt a commissioner had started the rumors.

"That really did not set well with me," Davis told commissioners. "I just didn't like the rumor that was being floated around."

Davis said the church's lease was not up until September 2 and the church was looking for a new place to locate at that time. They are in the process of purchasing land off Gum Avenue.

Davis added that the church had paid it's rent up until September.

"We do plan to be out by September 2," Davis said. "We are actively trying to find a place. I just wanted to assure the council that we've tried to be good tenants to the town."

Commissioners assured Davis that Monday night was the first time they had heard the rumors. Commissioner Newkirk apologized on behalf of the board for the rumors floating around and said he felt there was miscommunication between the town and the church regarding rental of Spaulding.
