"A Nazarene Church of the Coachella Valley"
The Nazarene Church of the Coachella Valley "Started in a house in 1939 on Highway 99(now Highway 86) and Ave 61 in Thermal CA. There were "Primarily two families (of the Millsap brothers and two teens).
"As the group grew, walls were knocked out (and the meeting area increased). At some pont the members felt they should find a place to move in Indio, A place was found at Requa and Smur. (This church was dedicated in 1945.) This is where the Church remained until the present property was found and the Church was built." (REF)
