Long Description:
The most noticeable feature of the sanctuary is the roof. Nine sturdy beams rest on buttresses to form triangles symbolic of the Trinity: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. As the roof sweeps heavenward on the north end, it forms the symbolic praying hands of a grateful believer. Inside, the beams with their wood decking reminds one of the boat or ark: The Church as the Ark of Salvation.
The rich wood of pine, fir, spruce, maple, and cherry, was quarried from a seam at Bradenton, Florida. In 1947, the building which had previously been a Presbyterian church, was moved to a site on Palmetto Avenue. The congregation continued to grow, and by 1960, there were in excess of 300 members.
