Regarding The Stone Church. The Community of Christ Stone Church (known from 1888-2000 as the RLDS Stone Church) is a church building in Independence, Missouri at 1012 W. Lexington, north across the street from the Church of Christ (Temple Lot) headquarters building and diagonally opposite ("cater-corner") the Community of Christ Temple.
The Church began construction on the site in 1884, and the completed building was dedicated on April 6, 1888. For years, the Stone Church was the headquarters building of the RLDS Church. Administrative offices and General Conference meetings were later transferred to the Community of Christ "Auditorium" in the mid 20th century, and still later to the Temple after 1994. The structure is still in use today as a regular congregational meeting location and community outreach programs.
