The Miami Beach Community Church was formed/built in 1920 and was officially ready for guests on the second Sunday in January of 1921. The original name was β€œMiami Beach Congregational Church”; however, to make people from all denominations feel welcome, the name was changed within the first year to β€œMiami Beach Community Church” and eventually came to become β€œThe United Church of Christ.”

The photo above is undated, but its likely to be for the 1950s judging by the car parked in front of the church. Below is a photo of the church in the year 1921, which shows it more how it looked freshly built.
