A drive out of the center, Harry Weese's 1965 church would be the most exciting church in most cities. Here in Columbus, it is not as good as either Saarinen masterwork, but still: its massing and detail and surfaces are terrific.

The church is celebrating its 50th Anniversary at this location. Dr Dan Cash is the Pastor. The building was designed by Harry Weese and is one of sever National Historic Landmarks in Columbus, IN. The congregation is very friendly.

What a small country church should be. The sanctuary brings a feeling of worship with its simple beauty.

This wonderful church, by Harry Weese, is so calming and satisfying from the exterior. The interior is simplicity personified - it is a prayerful place. Do tour the building, and notice the Chapel as well.
