Glynn County staff removed a preliminary subdivision plat for the lot currently occupied by St. Luke African Methodist Episcopal Church from the agenda for today’s Islands Planning Commission meeting.
The lot at the end of George Lotson Avenue on St. Simons Island is the subject of a lawsuit between St. Luke and the 6th District of the national AMEC organization, which wants to sell the property.
Sixth District leadership point to the governing document of the AMEC, which states all individual AME churches are held in trust for the national organization. St. Luke member contend they are not subject to the rule because they founded the church before the AMEC imposed it.
The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. today in Sea Palms Resort’s grand ballroom, 515 N. Windward Drive on St. Simons Island.
