Country Church circa 1880's

When we went to Mt. Dora we passed this little old church building . It was a beautiful little church. Now starting to deteriorate, maybe for good. My Aunt said the town always kept it up, but not since the economy fell.

The sign reads come join us every 3rd Sunday. Sunday School 9:30 AM and
Worship 11:00 Am.

Of course no one has came for worship at this little building in years. It is such a sad little story.... I can almost hear the echos of those old time sermons and maybe a dinner on the ground. Of course it is just a building. "The true church can never fail. For it is based upon a rock." T.S. Eliot.

"Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of healthy blood to a sick man." Dwight L. Moody

  1. I would rather go to a sweet church like that than all the big fancy ones there are now. I have seen some people convert old churches into homes. Maybe somebody will do something with it!

  2. It is a beautiful little church. You are so right. Love the post!

  3. I love old church buildings! That is just beautiful! What a beautiful place to worship - sad that it isn't filled with people. Have a blessed week ~

  4. Hi Amy Jo: Old churches and cemateries fascinate me. It seems so sad when you see them in disrepair, like no one cares any more..Happy Tuesday..Judy

  5. Dear Amy Jo,
    What a beautiful little church. I love old fashioned white churches. Why don't they build them like this anymore. There is a big modern church in town that even has a lighted marquee ~ very tacky.


I love reading your comments......They mean so much to me!!!
