The First Congregational United Church of Christ in downtown Ypsilanti has been a part of our community's history since the 19th century.  It was put up for sale about a decade ago, and its potential recently caught the eye of local entrepreneurs.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Brianna Kelly talk to Steve Pierce and Yen Azzaro, who plan to make the old church into Ypsilanti's next community center.
