The first Congregational Church was destroyed by fire in 1901. This church was designed by Forest Grove architect F. M. Starrett and built on the church’s property at 21st Avenue between Main Street and College Way in 1905. It too was destroyed by fire in 1919. This wood building has a gable roof design with a smaller gable on the two opposite sides. There are two entrances on the front with the main entrance in the middle and is also the bell tower. The upper portion of each gable has a distinctive black section. The bell tower also has a black section. Each gable has a large arched stained glass window. There is a concrete sidewalk, curb and paved street. On the left in the background store fronts can be seen on Pacific Avenue and on the right, storefronts can be seen on Main Street.
