“Interesting Church”

First Christian Church
Reviewed 27 November 2016

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.

You first notice the tower. It is a beacon from all over town. We used it to navigate back to the visitor's center. The interior is full of little details. I highly recommend using a guide to get the full picture. The back story is almost as good as the physical building. It is located in the heart of the history (library, visitor's center, mansion). There is parking at the visitor's center across the street.

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.
