Within two years, the society purchased a new frame building on Park Street for their services. In 1893, the close proximity of steam and electric roads caused such disturbances that the church began to search for a new location. In 1902, the society built a new church at 86-15 114th Street. In November, 2008, the building became home to the Global Christian Ministries Church, a pentecostal congregation.

This organ was originally built in 1878 for Pilgrim Chapel in Brooklyn. At an unknown time it was moved to Union Congregational Church.
The following specification was recorded by an employee of Louis F. Mohr & Co., a longtime organ service firm in the area. Mohr's specification (dated Feb. 18, 1911) shows that the E. & G. G. Hook & Hastings organ had a case that was about 15' high by 7' 8" deep (plus 2 feet for the pedals) by 11' 4" wide (plus 2' for the pump handle). In the case were 25 display pipes decorated in gold and dark green. The organ was blown by hand from a handle on the right. Mohr notes that the organ was moved to Union Congregational Church in Richmond Hill. ----------
