EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan church originally built as a home to a fraternity may be converted into a sorority house.

The Lansing State Journal reports (http://on.lsj.com/1SPzLqx ) the East Lansing building that houses Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Lansing was the home of the Michigan State University chapter of Zeta Beta Tau from the late 1950s to the early 1970s.

Developers Sixty North LLC are seeking a permit from the city to convert the church into a house for sorority Alpha Xi Delta. Once converted back for residential use, the building would house 32 to 40 people. Renovations would take place next year.

The church decided to move in part because of a lack of parking. The 320-plus member congregation will get a new home next year at a former school in Lansing.
