A small unassuming white church on a narrow country road.
In the late nineteenth century, Rutersville became a German Lutheran settlement.
During this time, a German-English elementary school, a free public school, was opened.
Members of the church have been meeting here since 1895.
No amount of "shooing" could make these vultures fly away. I tried....but they were still there when I finished photographing, in the 100 degree temperature.
Today's photos remind me of the beloved hymn written by the German theologian, Martin Luther.
A Mighty Fortress Is Our God
based on Psalm 46
God is our Refuge and Strength
An Ever-present Help in Trouble.

What a lovely little church. Your photos are just wonderful. Strange about the vultures.ReplyDelete
That hymn is very familiar to me and the words are very comforting.
I did not find a church to share this week but I enjoyed yours.
Have a good day.
Hi Mildred....I seriously considered not posting this photo. The church is located in the country. This is probably the highest point around...maybe that is what attracts the birds.Delete
I love those branches reaching out across the churchReplyDelete
I love those trees, too. They are Texas Live Oaks..Delete
I love the wonderful buildings and fences you find to photograph! I sometimes think it would be great for someone to photograph the old falling-apart buildings in our desert valley (before they collapse), but, aside from the fact that I'm not much of a photographer, most of the time they are inaccessible and have to be admired from a distance.ReplyDelete
it remind's me of an old schoolhouse, love the beautiful shade trees and the bird picture turns it into a gothic looking church, [everyone needs somewhere to rest even vultures.]ReplyDelete
Nice looking churchReplyDelete
