location: Harrison's Preschool Pageant
Actually, the church's official address is 1760 N. Gower Street.
But it's a large church campus, with nine buildings, and the scene
where Dexter runs outside, looking for his kidnapped son, was shot on Yucca Street (just east of Gower), on the north side of the campus.
( It's what their campus map refers to as the Upper Terrace, next to the Community Ministry Center. )
If the name sounds familiar, it's because this is the same church campus where they filmed the 4th Season scenes of Trinity's church (although they used a different building this time).
It's located right next Hollywood Freeway, a block north of Hollywood Blvd, and just a few blocks north of the Sunset-Gower Studio, where they film "Dexter".
And it is literally right across the street (north of) the "Four Walls, One Heart" build site, where Dexter first joined Trinity to help erect homes for the poor.
Dexter walked through as he dashed outside to try to find Harrison.
(The camera is on Yucca Street, looking south.).

Here is an aerial photo of the location. Here is a Bing StreetSide.

A. In previous seasons, I've
usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes,
using clues from the various scenes. By the 6th season, though,
I'd developed a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an
eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and would let me know
in advance when something was about to film there.
This time, it was Rick who tipped
me that they were filming at the church, and even sent me the photo you
I then used Bing StreetSide
to pinpoint the wrought iron gate
where Dexter walked out of the school. I matched the large hedge
seen when Dexter comes out, plus the wrought iron doors, as well as the
fire hydrant on the corner, and the freeway "Do not enter" sign on the
other side of Gower. (Thanks, Rick!)
