Sept. 20, 2015: OMP United Methodist Church Bell Restoration

We’re in the process of restoring the old church bell at my church, Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church – on Center Road about a mile south of the Old Mission Tavern.

The bell, which I believe was in the original church just north of the Hogsback, was housed in a building at Ann and Howard Fouch’s, but when the house was sold, we had to figure out what to do with the bell. I can’t wait to see it on display at the church (I’m on the “bell committee”).

For reference, we’re looking at something similar to the bell on display at TBA Credit Union across from the Senior Center in Traverse City. There will be fundraising involved.
