Korean Church of Ann Arbor

I Spy: December 2019

by Sally Bjork

From the January, 2020 issue

"Thanks for featuring something here" on the Southeast side, says Moira Tannenbaum regarding December's I Spy. It's the Korean Church of Ann Arbor," writes Lillian Chen. "This charming church is nestled at 3301 Creek Dr.," writes David Karl, adding that it was originally the First Spiritualist "Church of the Divine Faith, [built] by Mary Ellen Pentland in the shape of a cross." In a 1973 "Personality Portrait" in the Ann Arbor News, Pentland "almost single-handedly" built the church over the course of 16 years and then became ordained at the age of eighty-two to lead it. The Korean Church of Ann Arbor, with roots in the city since 1967, arranged to buy the building in 1976 when Rev. Pentland, then eighty-four, was looking to downsize.

Seven people entered our contest, and six correctly identified the Korean Church of Ann Arbor. Our random drawing winner is Mike Appel of Ann Arbor. "If I win," he quips, "I will buy half a pie from Zingerman's."
