After almost six decades at Robertsville Road and Oak Ridge Turnpike, Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church has purchased 4.6 acres for a new building.
The 260-member congregation closed on the property at 809 Oak Ridge Turnpike in late February. Plans are for the new building to be completed by Thanksgiving 2014.
“Of course, relocating the church building has been an enormous undertaking, and an emotional one, for this community,” said the Rev. Jake Morrill, church minister since 2003.
