Another msytery modern :: help please!

, originally uploaded by .

In 1957 the Times-Picayune published this architect's sketch for the Bethany Methodist Church to be built at Mendez and Piety in Pontchartrain Park.

The church took a different form from its initial design shown here, but the fellowship hall maintained the vaulted roof and perforated sun screen. The church was dedicated in 1958, suffered eleven feet of water in the flooding after Hurricane Katrina and has since been restored.

We are seeking any additional information about the history and design of Bethany Methodist.
