The church you see today is the fourth building that has been built for the United Methodist Church in Flint over the past 150 years. The New Gothic Style building was constructed of brick, with a slate roof and cut-stone trimmings. The sanctuary seats 1,200 and is one of Flint’s largest. It also contains eight stained glass windows depicting the Beatitudes, including the lamp of knowledge, an open book, scales of justice, and the Ten Commandments.
