The congregation rapidly growing in number had to raise to building costs. Church Mem Bers helped with labor on the Structure that was built on an old Sand pit and once condemned piece of property on the second Loop Kond. The new Structure is Adja to a Frame building which was the first Westminster Church that building will now be used As an educational Plant for the Church. The new Westminster Church re tests careful planning and fore sight. While not elaborate it by Penis dignity and solidity. The panelling of the Pul pit the exposed beams and the apparently wide open front give it an ageless air and at the same time does not fail to blend with the modernistic Bullet spot lighting. The Sand faced Brick of Wainscot ing and two Interior Walls adds to the ageless Quality the slate Patio porch the Rock Maple pews the electrically oper ated Church Bells a movie project Tiomir cutout and the recessed Light ing these Are the things that whisper tomorrow is Here.
