The Chi Alpha Youth House was located on the North West corner of NE 6th and Clackamas across the street from the church.  Temple had a fantastic youth program with a group of energetic leaders.  The house was purchased mainly for the youth program.  A massive restoration and remodel took place once it was in the churches possession.  The basement was called the "Catacombs."  It had a pin ball machine, foos ball table, ping pong and a stereo system.  There was a pool table in the kitchen up on the main floor.  The rest of the house was for Sunday School rooms.  The house has since been sold to a electric utility company and torn down.  Today there is an electric sub station that takes up the whole block where the house was situated.
