J. M. Mather  The last sanctuary was finished in 1914, with additions made and remodeling completed in 1961.

Robert McIntire was established in 1947, with the help of Trinity Church and name for a member of Trinity.  However, it had is beginnings in Pierce Chapel which organized in 1913, and was located on W. 56th St.  The last brick building was erected in 1948, and the first pastor was Rev.
