Description

In a group of Macon people describing themselves as Unitarians began meeting in their homes.

Sunday morning meetings were not directly related to religious themes; discussions or speakers on topics of general interest were the norm. The congregation was unknown in the community and had no interaction with other religious groups in Macon. Many people came and went in this early period of three decades, but the group had enough of a feeling of permanence to take the name The Unitarian Fellowship of Middle Georgia.

A of ministers, including Rev. Frances West, Rev. Robert Hill, Rev. Walter Wieder, Rev. Beth Ide, and Rev. Rolfe Gerhardt, traveled from out of town to offer their services and helped sustain the fledgling congregation. The re-chartering in was a conscious attempt by some of the original group members to create a viable UU congregation in Macon.

It was obvious that a permanent meeting site was needed. On Sunday mornings over an eight-year period, members came to the bank, ed in with a bank guard at the door, and descended to the low-ceilinged, windowless meeting room. Yet, the stability of the meeting site and the size of the room made possible the ificant growth of the congregation.

By the membership had reached about 40, with the usual Sunday attendance in the mids. One held that the next step should be the retention of an extension minister, while the other insisted that acquiring a church building should be the first priority. There was, of course, another opinion: that the congregation could afford neither the minister nor the building. For a time it seemed the only result would be inconclusive debate among the members.

But this small UU congregation had more success with courage than with debate — after thoroughly searching their own hearts and minds, they undertook to get both a building and a minister. The congregation applied to the UUA for the appointment of an extension minister and was rewarded by having its application approved. The original congregation outgrew the building in the s and moved to the suburbs, selling the downtown building to a Church of Christ congregation.

In that group sold the building to the UU congregation, and the Fellowship changed its name in reflection of its pride in the new permanent facility. Instrumental in both the purchase of the building and in the successful application for an extension minister was the Reverend Susan Milnor, who came to Macon once or twice a month until these two critical strides were accomplished. Mary Katherine Morn grew into her ministry as her congregation grew and expanded her role to full-time service. The congregation soon came to depend on her pastoral presence as well as her inspiring and courageous voice from the pulpit.

In the space of a few years, the congregation had ceased to be a family church and had become a larger, pastor-centered congregation. High Street UU Church grew in membership and program. Adult religious education moved from being occasional study groups to a continuing sequence of Sunday morning and weekday evening classes.

Social Justice became a focal point of congregational activity, with the adoption of an inner-city school for which High Street undertakes to provide arts education, the collection of food and clothing for local shelters on a weekly basis, annual participation in the Re-building Together housing rehabilitation project, consistent support for the UUSC, and a real presence in social action demonstrations, such as the annual Martin Luther King, Jr.

High Street also became more active in denominational affairs, with members serving as officers and lay leaders of the Mid-South District and the UUA and with congregational delegates regularly attending General Assembly. In the summer and fall ofMary Katherine Morn took a well-earned sabbatical. Her six month absence from High Street Church was extended by maternity leave following the birth of her son, Caleb, on Christmas Day. A Caregivers Committee was organized to respond to the pastoral needs of the membership.

Church members and guest speakers filled the pulpit.

The congregation welcomed Mary Katherine back to her ministry, more fully aware of the need for their taking primary responsibility for their church and more confident of their ability to do what was required. In January,Rev. Morn announced her intention to seek another ministry.

In the midst of grieving the anticipated loss of a beloved pastor, the congregation moved ahead with concrete steps it had planned to further develop the program at High Street UU Church. While the congregation went about the process of nominating and electing a Ministerial Search Committee, it also was busy developing a plan to enlarge the seating capacity of our sanctuary. At the same time, we established our first professional music position; we hired LeNelle Boyd, an accomplished professional with years of experience in church music and choir direction, to be our part-time Director of Music Development.

The creation of this new staff position was a substantial increase in our commitment to a high quality music program. During Rev. Fern gently led the congregation to complete its grieving for its first minister and helped the lay leadership complete its understanding of the appropriate arrangements between minister and congregation for their responsibilities in a shared ministry. The summer of was the most active summer of our history, with music and RE programs running throughout the summer.

We welcomed eight new members and moved forward in discussions of a long-range vision for High Street, essentially coming to grips with issues of growth. We recognized that our church facility had ificant problems — chief among them the fact that, despite our best efforts at painting and fixing up our downstairs RE space, it remained a musty, dimly-lit place altogether uninviting for children and adults.

We realized that our facility was impeding our ability to serve our present congregation and attract new members. Further, we came to grips with the fact that our downstairs facilities were not accessible to the disabled. We debated whether we should purchase ading property for the expansion and renovation of our facility or, instead, purchase another location for the construction of a new and larger church building.

A series of cottage meetings led to a new vision for High Street Church from the viewpoint of the entire membership. Meanwhile, the Ministerial Search Committee announced its candidate to be our next settled minister and invited the Reverend Yvonne V. Miller to meet the congregation. When Yvonne preached her candidating sermons in the spring ofthe congregation voted unanimously to call her to service as our minister. Yvonne came to us in mid-life, having left a career in law to attend seminary and pursue the ministry.

She brought to the task a creative mind, a heart dedicated to social justice, and an inspiring voice. She also became heavily invested in the social justice work of the congregation in the Macon community.

Yvonne worked with the lay leadership in taking steps to implement the new congregational vision for growth in our downtown location. In the spring ofthe congregation approved a mortgage to finance the purchase of the house ading our church building. Disappointment and confusion gave way to quiet resolve and determination to discover whether expansion of our facilities within the four walls of our High Street building was feasible.

In the fall ofthe High Street Board of Trustees approved an architectural study of expanding our facilities within the High Street building and appointed a Steering Committee to work with the architect. Members and friends, including members of the original Fellowship who had since moved away, filled every seat in the sanctuary and enjoyed Rev. In the life of a congregation, as in the life of the individual, great joys are sometimes juxtaposed with great sorrows. Yvonne Miller took a six-month medical leave of absence.

It became apparent toward the end of that period that Yvonne would not be able to continue her ministry with us, and she asked to be permanently relieved of her duties for health reasons.

Smith, a native of Savannah, returned to the South from an interim ministry in New England with enthusiasm and energy to a congregation hungry for ministerial contact. An obvious task for the congregation and for the interim minister was to address the pains of loss, confusion and disappointment that attended the loss of our second settled minister. For that purpose, on the advice of District Executive Eunice Benton, we chose to have an interim minister for two years and not form a search committee until the spring of With our capital campaign and renovation in mid-stride, we had more than enough to do in the interim.

On November 10,the congregation officially closed the doors of our church home on High Street and broke ground on the long anticipated renovation. The beginning of construction work could begin only after arrangements had been made for the continuation of congregational life without a place to call home for Sunday services and our numerous activities. In solving these logistical problems, the High Street congregation was assisted by two great friends of liberal religion in our community. Mercer University, a moderate Baptist institution led by President R.

Kirby Godsey, made available free of charge its Willingham Chapel for Sunday services. Temple Beth Israel, our neighboring reform Jewish congregation, generously offered a house ading its synagogue, with appropriate facilities for our interim minister, church secretary, and board and committee meetings.

For 14 months, the congregation met and flourished in these borrowed quarters. On January 4,Sunday worship services were d in our renewed church home and the congregation quickly moved furnishings, books and equipment to our new facility. The four exterior walls of the building and its beautiful sanctuary show only cosmetic changes, but the remainder of the facility — walls, floors, bathrooms and infrastructure — are completely new.

We have essentially built a new church around our cherished sanctuary. The best feature of the new construction is the downstairs classrooms and fellowship area, which are now serviced by an elevator, a fully functional kitchen and restroom.

High Street UU Church now presents to our community a facility that matches and reflects the quality, the strength, and the commitment of our congregation and its ministry. Applications for the position came from all over the country and from an array of ministers with varied degrees of experience in parish ministry. When the Search Committee introduced its candidate to the congregation, some were surprised that the candidate, the Reverend Rhett D. Baird, was not a fledgling minister, but a veteran of a ten-year ministry in Fayetteville, Arkansas and an earlier career in business.

When the congregation heard him preach from our pulpit and had conversations with him and his wife Rhonda, all understood why he had risen to the top of the list of potential ministers for High Street Church.

The congregation was evidently very pleased with its return to the new High Street building and with its decision to call Rev. Some attributed the generous pledging to a highly acclaimed reprise production of Les Uniterribles, a musical event produced by Dorner Carmichael. The church year is one of great joy and ceremonious occasions, both fall and spring. On October 3, our new building was dedicated as the highlight of a celebration weekend. Old friends and former members and ministers journeyed to in the celebration. The Sunday afternoon building dedication ceremony featured an address by UUA Executive Director Kay Montgomery and expressions of grateful appreciation to all our many friends and members who had made the re-building of High Street possible.

The following spring, on March 20,the High Street congregation formally installed Rev. Rhett Baird as its third settled minister. Share this: Twitter Facebook.
