Joseph P. MacCarthy

1905 - 1910

Joseph P. MacCarthy organized the fiftieth anniversary celebration of the "Advent of Liberal Christianity to Kalamazoo" in October 1906. Membership was reported to be 367, of which 82 had just joined since MacCarthy's arrival. The Sunday School had an average attendance of 80. Two hundred people attended the Annual Meeting of 1908. Mrs. MacCarthy headed the Unity Club, a Sunday evening study group. The MacCarthys were well liked and there was a general good feeling in the church, but the church was insolvent.
