One thing that set Medical Community households apart from Redeemer households was there were often persons of different faiths or denominations that lived together and worshiped on their own each weekend, rather than going to Redeemer. Elders in 1974 were Dr. Bob Eckert, Charles Foss, Joe Satterfield, Frank Marzullo.  Dan Butler was added to the eldership along with Fr. Billy Grissom when Dr. Bob left in early 1975, and St. Matthew's took on oversight of the Community and Clinic.
