Beautiful Church in Small Town Texas... for InSPIREd Sunday

 
Yesterday, while traveling to the nearest building supply store, I had some extra time to photograph a church that I pass every time I take this road. 
 
I would have to say...
 it has the most unusual bell tower, in the area.
 
 
 
 
This gives you a better perspective of it's size and how it is mounted in the ground.
 


I've tweaked the photo by taking out all the color,
 except for the bell.
Click on the photo for a better look.

 
The church has a very interesting history...that began in 1900.
 
A quote from the church history page....
" German and Czech pioneers, many of whom were first generation Americans, longed to have a place of worship for their families wherein they could worship as they desired."

Even though the window has a reflection from the double glass,
 you can still see the beautiful shapes
 and color blue in the design.
 
The church truly has some unique elements,
like this deep-set alcove in the upper part of the sanctuary.

  4. I love church steeples, but this is a bit too modern for this old guy! The window is a delight.
