Our History

Construction of Coral Gables Congregational Church sanctuary and tower in 1924



The church was founded in 1923 and is the oldest established building and organization in Coral Gables. George Merrick, the architect and developer of Coral Gables, was the son of a Congregational Minister.  To honor his father, he built this church, which has continued to be both a historic site and a significant force in this community. Known for its inspiring worship, outstanding music and arts program, a premier Early Childhood Center, and a bold and prophetic outreach program, the church is a place of solace, sanctuary, and spiritual growth for thousands of people every year.
