The 1939 design is an assemblage of Arts and Crafts elements, for which Whitehouse & Price were known, and abstracted Gothic Revival elements including an Art Deco-inspired bell tower. Like the rest of the church, the tower is clad in a subtle clinker brick trimmed with cast stone. The sanctuary space is a simple rectangular nave with a chamfered chancel. The focus of the sanctuary is an illuminated gold leaf cross surrounded by symbols of the Four Evangelists and twelve apostles, also in gold leaf, in the center of the carved oak reredos in the chancel. Stained glass windows in the nave, designed and created by Charles J. Connick Studios and installed between 1943 and 1958, illustrate stories from the Old and New Testaments. The 3-story Christian Education Wing was added in 1966. The variegated brick and the architecture of the entrance match that of the sanctuary. (Description from SAH Archipedia, written by Anne L.
