We are not member of the congregation, but live near-by and recently had our son baptized here. Absolutely stunning even when it isn't a clear day.

Specatular setting into which Frank Lloyd Wright, Jr, placed a glass chapel overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Worth the trip somewhat out of the way on the Palos Verdes Penisula.

One of the most beautiful churches in all of the United States! Beautifully designed by Frank Loyd Wright Jr, the views are amazing with huge glass windows and large mature trees!
