Established in 1992, the Green Bay Area Unitarian Universalist Fellowship first began meeting in the cafeteria of AMS. The insurance company had been located in the former Regency Center on the 400 block of Main Street near downtown Green Bay. Soon after, the fellowship began renting space at the YWCA dance studio where services were held for many years. We have since leased or rented space at three additional locations before purchasing our permanent home in early 2017. Twenty five years later, we once again find ourselves back on Main Street, this time at the edge of the Arts District.
The former 1313 Main Street Fox Valley Credit Union has been transformed to a vibrant environment for spiritual growth. Inspired by nature, an inviting sanctuary is now located where teller counters and desks once stood. Future plans include converting the old drive-thru stations into a courtyard and offering expanded religious education programs.
“We are a proud to be an active part of this community,” states Janice Galt, a longtime member and a Past President of the GBAUUF Board of Directors. “We are here for real, not just renters. We’ve planted roots.”
The move is due, in part, to a generous bequest from the estate of Betty McNaulty, one of our founding members, and a capital campaign.
The Green Bay Area Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a welcoming congregation and member of the national Unitarian Universalist Association. Locally, we support JOSHUA (Justice Organization Sharing Hope and United for Action) and have participated in the annual Pride Alive festival held in summer. Members are also active in sustainability and other community initiatives.
