This brick and stucco church suggests a Prairie school interpretation of the Gothic Revival. The corner entrance tower is low and squat, made even more so by the wide overhang of its hipped roof. The windows above the entrance door are carried through the wood entablature right up to the soffit of the roof. One tends to read the pointed windows as horizontals, and the building's gabled ends are slightly cantilevered out over the brick foundation walls.
