10 Coolest Churches in Metro Phoenix
Valley Presbyterian Church can by eye catching from several angles but our favorite is the east side.
We don't know if you worship on Sunday or sleep in the like the rest of us. (And frankly, we don't care.)
But chances are, you can appreciate good design when you see it. While we've taken the time to pay tribute the coolest buildings in metro Phoenix, from hospitals to banks, auditoriums to office high-rises, churches in the Valley deserve a category all their own. Whether you're looking to drive by or drop in, here are 10 structures that scream, "Holy moly."
There's more to Valley Presbyterian than meets the eye. From McDonald Road, drivers by can view the Kilgore Chapel completed in 1983 and featuring angular radiating beams and stained glass by artists Robert McCall. Further back, along Quail Run Road, the campus' older and, in our opinion, more interesting structure comes into view: the 800-seat sanctuary. Erected in 1966, the building features massive concrete beams, slanting roofs, and decorative stone brought down from Prescott. The campus was designed by Philadelphia architect Harold E. Wagoner and its oldest buildings dates back to 1958.
