This reminds me of churches up around where my grandparents lived in Northern Vermont.

Yes Jim, I have pass by this church many times. I love little old churches, they reminds me of my days in the Mississippi Delta ... not necessarily happy times, but there were some joy in-between the pain. Thanks for the good thoughts.

This church has a bit of a look of many old churches on a New England green, painted white in wood and USA charm, styled not like the edifices in Europe. Simple style for worship - come as you are and feel comfortable at worship...

I enjoyed these photos, Jim. I love small, old-fashioned country churches. Very welcoming.

Hi there Jim - that time of week again when we turn our gaze skyward! *waves across the Gulf at Jim* Pretty little church; I've often remarked to whomever would listen that the churches built during my youth, big brick affairs, are so VERY ugly by comparison. The ones that were already there when I was born - now THOSE are churches!

Happy Friday, dude -

That looks like a nice little church. I really like the first photo - the white against the blue.
