Nyesville Full Gospel Fellow Ship

The other day we took a short drive....this is taken the same day as the mule in the previous post. And probably no more than 5 or 10 minutes of slow driving apart.
I love seeing little country churches taken care of, and always wonder how they started. Was it started at what once was a small town/village or was it built in central location for the congregation.

Also, did anyone notice the way fellowship is spelled as two separate words in the sign?
We are off to an appointment in Indy after I may not get to visit everyone till later.

I'm with you about little country churches...they fascinate me.

Funny wording...but some folks think of the church as a ship in the sea of life so maybe it was deliberate: fellow ship.

Either that or they need to get "Sign Spell-check."

A good "find" to shot. I like the full church view and the sign with the interesting spelling. It must be deliberate... would be my guess. Fine shots.

What a sweet little country Church. Funny, we both posted 'country churches' today. Quaint and beautiful. It just goes to show you don't need a fancy place to visit god.

I am with you on the blogging bit. I am first interested in the pictures, sometimes the prose and sometimes not. MB

I wonder the same thing about some churches. We have a few out in the middle of nowhere but I guess they were once equidistant from several communities, none of which were large enough for its own church. This one is very pretty with it's white siding and red roofs.

Old wooden country churches are my favorite. I like the red accents and the windows are in my mind perfect church windows.
I agree with Jacob on the spelling and it makes me think of the hymn Let The Lower Lights Be Burning - "send a gleam across the way, some poor fainting struggling seaman you may rescue,you may save."

This is a beautiful country church. Is there a village or town nearby? Perhaps some of the churches were located in a central location for the congregation. I did notice the spelling of 'fellow ship'.

Oh how gorgeous, Rose. I love seeing old country churches---especially when they are so well-taken-care-of like this one. Beautiful!!!!

Wonder why/who spelled Fellow Ship??? Maybe there was a good reason?????

Hope you have had a wonderful day with Bright Eyes.

Rose: That is a neat church.

It's funny, my husband drove over the road for a few years and when I would go with him I always tried getting snapshots of little churches we would pass. Living in southeastern Iowa, we have many small township churches that have closed, but are still standing. I also get a kick out of small town post offices- some of those are the cutest, littlest buildings!
