This church was built on land purchased at very low cost from the congregation member, Bernard Maybeck and his family. After several years of planning and fund-raising, the congregation made the move in 1960 to this new facility by Wurster, Bernardi and Emmons.

Artist Nancy Genn created the church's lectern, and Antonio Prieto designed the screen.
