Ahhhhh ... from the outside, I thought maybe it was a school at first, because, well, it just doesn't look like a church. It looks like a doctor's office building or something ... and from the inside, um, it looks like a 50's Lutheran church if I've ever seen one ... I'm guessing that statue and tabernacle are from an older building that I'm afraid to ask about ... the windows are interesting but there's a 50's Methodist church here with windows like that but better ... ahh -- this one needs a makeover -- like maybe a whole new building.

shariys, I'm surprised at you. Think of how ecumenical it is!

Well, yeah, that ... ah, pretty much answers the question. Thanks. A shame that they couldn't build onto their original church, which at least looked like a church!
