It was hard for me to believe that this church was built in the late 30's. It is so modern and contemporary. The church is full of light and it is very simple. The high ceiling draws us toward heaven. An interesting place.
This is a wonderful example of modernist architecture and since it's the focal point and beginning of the architectural sites of the city, I won't go into detail but our visit during the architectural tour was well worth it. Nothing like the gothic cathedrals of Europe but amazing none the less.
Visited this church as part of a walking architecture tour. It was within walking distance of the visitors center and across the street from the library. A great way to start out the tour. The library was built after the church but took some design cues from the church. Also nearby is the lovely Irwin home and gardens.

If you are interested in architecture, you do need to go on a guided tour (Columbus Architectural Tour) that includes seeing the inside of this sanctuary. Your Guide will give background history and point out things that make this church unique. It is well worth the money.

Built in a fashion similar to the great cathedrals in Europe, this church is a sight to behold. The tapestry on the wall was made by Saarinen's wife and is beautiful. Acoustics is this church are pretty good too. Take the Visitor Center tour to learn more about the church.
This is not only a very impressive building with a sanctuary worth touring, this is a great church with an outstanding congregation and staff.
Didn't go inside, but the grounds in and around the church are worth viewing. Great architecture and interesting things to see. Loved seeing the sunken play ground...how uniquie!
