When we went to pick wineberries the other day, we came back on one of the many backroads here in Floyd. This church is one of the old churches here. As far as I know, this church is still being used. The Primitive Baptist and the Old Regular Baptist only meet once a month in a particular church. They rotate meeting each week in a different church building. I suppose this allowed more people to be able to hear the gospel.
Old churches have such character, I think. Enjoy your day and God bless.
What a beautiful setting for a church. Have a great day with your family.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE old churches! I love the old hard benches in them and that “smell” that old buildings/homes have. That is a beautiful one there. Alot of people who love to metal detect like to go to old churches looking for old coins and such out around the church building. There are old churches here that are still holding services and they swap out with other churches as well. Mostly because there are only a few people attending each church and so one preacher takes on all the churches. Hope you are having a great day 🙂
What a lovely old church and such a pretty setting.
I hope you are enjoying a blessed summer day!
There is a book called, The Man that Moved A mountain, you may have already read it, but it’s about a minister that came to Buffalo Mt in early 1900’s. He built rock churches all over the mountain area there. They are still used and standing. It’s a great trip to see them all and learn their history and many are close to you. I think his great grandson may still be preaching in one of the churches.
Makes me want to go to a Dinner on the Ground 🙂 wonder if Sister Hilda is still making the dessert?
That is a cool, old church. Now I want to see the inside:)
I like old churches as well. There are several in our area that alternate one week a month too and they are all white and built like this one. Very pretty.
I enjoy reading church names too. There are a few funny ones down in our area. Such as, ‘Little Hope”. I can’t imagine saying, “I go to the LIttle Hope Church.”
