UU Congregation marks 50 years

TRAVERSE CITY — The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Grand Traverse will celebrate its 50-year anniversary with a service on May 18.

The UUCGT started in 1964 with 26 adults and 30 children meeting in classrooms at Northwestern Michigan College. In 1980, the congregation rented a small building at Rose and Washington streets and nine years later called the Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher to serve as the first full-time minister. A successful capital campaign enabled them to build the present home on Center Road where they have met since May 1993.

The service at 10:30 a.m. at the UUCGT, 6726 Center Road, will feature former longtime pastor the Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher, and former minister of music, the Rev. Kevin Tarsa.
