Database Manager on June 20, 2005:

From Jeff Scofield: "A most impressive-looking sanctuary - quite dramatic. Even though nobody could tell me who the architect was, it has all the earmarks of a Harold Wagoner design - off-center aisle, choir tossed into one corner. The sanctuary's streetside facade is rather interesting-looking in relation to the interior. The organ sounds quite nice, though it's too small for the large space. The church has over 4,000 members."
