The exterior of our church building is designed to resemble an ark, which is the symbol for the church.  The spire on the center of the building, directly above the altar rises 48 feet from the roof, and contains the bell of the original  building which has been electrified and can be rung automatically at any hour of the day as well as tolled. The wood-deck ceiling is three inch planks laid end-to-end and finished in a natural  finish to allow the beauty of the grain to be seen.  A ramp on the Railroad Street end of the building, leading directly from Biddle Street, allows persons to enter the church without climbing any steps.  CLICK HERE for more information.
