Our History



While stationed at Patrick Air Force Base, Glenn Eschtruth, MD, was appointed pastor and held the first worship service for thirty-eight people in February 1957. On March 10th the church received its official charter and grew to seventy-five members. In its early days, the church met in a bar in downtown Cocoa Beach.  later moving to the "little white church" on South Orlando Ave. In 1960 the congregation built a fellowship hall at our current location where they worshipped and held Sunday school classes, until 1965 when the present sanctuary was built. Our stained glassed windows were featured on a PBS "artisode" aired October 5, 2017.
