    I’m ways intrigued by places like Light of the World that don’t look at all like a traditional church. It has a fortress like quality rather than the reaching for the heavens concept. Do you know how old that building is?

      I did some digging and found that Light of the World was built in 2003. Funny, I have no memory of it being built — and I used to live about 2 miles away from it.

        Ha! I hate when things like that happen!

    A few of those places seem distinctly governmental. The Jehovah’s Witnesses “hall” looked less like a place of worship so much as a venue to practice reversing Supreme Court rulings they didn’t like. But the Ambassadors church really has the appearance of something you might see in Europe… very nice. I think my favourite, though, has to be the Community Church. Cozy, shaded front, on a corner with trees… very compelling. It has the air of a simpler, more honest time and out of the whole lot of them, it’s the one that makes me most want to step inside.

      The JW hall was built as First Church of Christ, Scientist. It does look like a courthouse, doesn’t it?

      The Community Church is indeed an inviting little structure.

    My great-grandparents and grand parents attended this church on 12th and Delaware when it was a Christian Scientist church (back in the 1920s). My grandfather met his wife there. It was Second Church of Christ, Scientist back then

      I got to see the inside of that church after the JWs sold it and before Traders Point renovated the inside. Here’s an article I wrote about that.

    I always return to my photos of Tyson UMC in Versailles. You seem to get around, any photos of the interior of it?

      I do have some, but unfortunately I shot them on expired film and the images are faint and gritty. But here they are anyway:

    Lovely churches all – especially love the one in South Bend!

      Thanks! It was fun to go back through my photos and find these.

    Cool. I grew up in Crooked Creek Baptist Church. Later, when my dad went into the ministry, he pastored Boyleston Baptist Church. Thanks for the pix!

      How awesome is that, that I’ve managed to include two churches from your life in one post. I used to live near Crooked Creek Baptist. For most of 25 years I lived near Kessler/Cooper/56th Street.
