Foothills UMC Purchases Jansen Ave School

Foothills UMC will be moving to the Jansen Avenue School in Johnstown, NY in the near future. We are excited to continue our ministry with Pastor Brad at the helm of our new worship and mission center.

From the Leader Herald:

GJSD voters OK sale of Jansen Avenue School

JOHNSTOWN — Residents of the Greater Johnstown School District on Wednesday approved the sale of the former Jansen Avenue School, along with creating two separate capital reserve funds.

By a vote of 283-27, residents approved selling the former school building at 305 Jansen Ave.

In June, the district’s school board approved selling the building to Foothills United Methodist Church in Gloversville for $695,000.

The vote Wednesday was required in order for the deal to be completed.

The sale includes the old school building and playground, but not Briggs Field.

Representatives with the church have said they plan to use the building as a house of worship.
