Long Description:
Church Website

The congregation was organized by Pastor Erling Wold in 1942 in the backyard of several founding members. Very quickly the young congregation acquired a home at 3621 Tulsa Way, and remodeled it for administration, education, and worship space. When the congregation outgrew the space available by the remodeled home on its property, it worshipped in the Bowie Theater on Camp Bowie Blvd., a few blocks west of the Camp Bowie-Montgomery intersection, while its new building was under construction.

A unique building was designed by the Austin architectural firm, Fehr and Granger, and their plans were accepted by the congregation in September, 1953. Dedication of the new building took place on the congregation’s 13th anniversary, September 18, 1955. Later, in 1963, a fellowship hall and education/administration were added with a parking lot behind the facility, giving the congregation a three-story building from the lower (south, parking lot) side, with entry to the nave from a breezeway connecting the nave with the U-shaped building around a courtyard.

Year of construction: 1954
