My wife and I recently visited here for a Sunday service. The sanctuary is big. It has an interesting layout which is pretty neat and not typical. We enjoyed seeing the building but the church service was not the best.

Part of the Columbus Walking Tour App! Beautiful church from all angles. Part of the architectural surge in this beautiful city. Walk around and see from all sides. We were not able to get inside, but the outside is a treat by itself.
