Long Description:
Founded February 14, 1909, this is, for two obvious reasons, not the first church of this congregation. One hint is given by a large old cast iron bell displayed in front of the church; another by the fact that the church's cornerstone is dated "1953". The church's online presence consists only of a Facebook page, so information from it consists solely of the fact that it was Founded on February 14, 1909.

Faced with both stone and brick, this church was even given buttresses down each side of the nave, giving it an "historic" look. Otherwise quite contemporary in design, with rectangular windows and a gable roofed nave, the church has a tall, thin spire at the rear of the nave, with a small cross atop. At the bottom of the spire, a square base serves, not as a belfry, but as a speaker cabinet with big speakers on each side, blaring out bell like sounds every Sunday morning.
