This is a beautiful historic church. But beyond the building, the people are great. I highly recommend the church as both a place of worship and the history in the building.

Another awesome example of contemporary religious architecture in Columbus, so make sure you drive out here after the bus tour is over. You'll feel like you're inside of Noah's ark when you're in the sanctuary!

A drive out of the center, Harry Weese's 1965 church would be the most exciting church in most cities. Here in Columbus, it is not as good as either Saarinen masterwork, but still: its massing and detail and surfaces are terrific.

The church is celebrating its 50th Anniversary at this location. Dr Dan Cash is the Pastor. The building was designed by Harry Weese and is one of sever National Historic Landmarks in Columbus, IN. The congregation is very friendly.

What a small country church should be. The sanctuary brings a feeling of worship with its simple beauty.

distinctive architecture for this church in Columbus by Harry Weese -- even our Rabbi was impressed with the spirituality of the place

This wonderful church, by Harry Weese, is so calming and satisfying from the exterior. The interior is simplicity personified - it is a prayerful place. Do tour the building, and notice the Chapel as well.
