North Christian Church reviews
North Christian Church is entered though a dense grove of trees to the East and the morning sun lights up its magnificent roof and and spire. So, if you can, try to see it in the same light Saarinen..... more »
Unfortunately, this church does not have a large congregation to enjoy the spiritual experience, but you can enjoy. The interior of angles and the oculus makes the trip worthwhile. more »
