The church Website has an exterior photo (but not including the tower) on the Visitors' Center page.  The Church Tour does not mention the tower or bells.  But part of the tower can be seen in the photo background of the What's New page, and a drawing of the building is on the Newsletter page.

A news article (Oct.2020) about the architectural significance of the building (poured concrete Gothic revival) opens with a large photo of the building, in which some of the bells are visible in the tower.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Petit & Fritsen bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
