For almost three years, the Montrose church was getting by with a devoted-but-interim pastor. "They were without leadership," said the new pastor, the Rev. John May. People weren't even sure the church would remain open. Meanwhile, May was busy leading a Glendale congregation called New Hope Baptist Church in Glendale.

Gail Marks left her hometown of Oak Park, Illinois on her wedding day in July, 1967 and headed for Glendale with her new husband, Ken. She quickly found a church home at First Congregational Church of Glendale. The church, organized in 1911, celebrated its centennial last year and Marks was instrumental in compiling a booklet detailing those 100 years. Here's a very short summary. Soon after its founding, members began planning a new church at Central and Wilson avenues. Construction began on June 12, 1912 and, amazingly, the small wood-frame church was dedicated on the last day of that same month.

From one perspective, the resolution of the St. Andrew's Church expansion issue was a complete success; from another, it was a complete failure. In late 2002, the church submitted an application requesting a general plan amendment to increase the maximum development allocation for its property by approximately 36,000 square feet. St. Andrew's wanted the space to construct a youth and family center and to replace several buildings. At that time, the church also requested a change in the zoning of the property from single-family residential and two-family residential to zoning for governmental, educational and institutional facilities.
