The Congregational Church was responsible for the formation of the Miami Beach Community Church - the first house of worship erected in the City Carl G. Fisher, at the encouragement of his wife Jane, gave the three lots on which the church was built. The Sanctuary was ready for occupancy on the second Sunday in January, 1921, the church organized with twenty-seven charter members on Feb. 7, 1921, and the building was dedicated on Palm Sunday, March 20, 1921. The first minister - The Rev. Dr. Elisha King - oversaw the church from 1921-1940. In 1926 hurricane, the church was flooded, the hymn books, piano and organ ruined, and the pages of the altar Bible were ripped out up to the Gospel of John! The Rev. Dr. R. Wiley Scott was the second minister of the Community Church serving from 1940-1973. The Rev. Dr. Garth. R. Thompson was called to the pulpit on January 1 of 1974 and continues to serve today. From its inception, the church observed open communion - which means that all Christians are welcome to participate in the service (or mass) held on the first Sunday of each month. Over the years, members donated the stained glass windows of the sanctuary, chapel and library
