NotesChicago Temple (First Methodist) located in the heart of the Loop (Clark and Washington Streets) is the world's tallest church. The spire flood-lighted at night, is one of Chicago's most inspiring sights. The cross is 568 feet above the street. The Deagan Carillon is heard throughout the downtown area. Offices occupy the upper 19 stories; 7,000 people pass through the doors daily. First Church is Chicago's oldest church, having occupied its present site for 104 years. The air-conditioned, sound-proof sanctuary is on the main floor. The organ is one of America's largest and finest instruments. Each week at least 30 states are represented in the large attendance at the Sunday Services. Dr. Charles Ray Goff is the minister.
