Thursday Door

We stopped at a store, and because of where we parked, when I got out of the car this beautiful white steeple seemed to be calling to me in that bright blue sky.

Garden City Chapel sits between Murrells Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean.

Since 1952, families have gathered to worship on Sunday from May through Labor Day in September for an interdenominational service with casual dress.

The Chapel is part of a larger campus that offers summer Christian retreats to around 10,000 campers from across the country. The campus takes up about two square blocks directly across the street from beach access.

An opportunity to worship, beautiful white steeple, bright yellow door, and across from the beach – location, location, location.

Have a great Thursday and may all your open doors be good ones. πŸ™‚

    I remember seeking out a place to go to church when we were on vacation as I was growing up. Sometimes, it was an adventure. This chapel is beautiful.

    Beautiful! On another subject, did you get any of the snow that hit North Carolina, where my daughter and her husband live? They got about 10 inches, and lost their power for about 12 hours. What a crazy, crazy winter!

    • Oh my goodness. Hope your daughter has dug out and the power is back on. We did not get any snow, but the temps are in the 20’s, and you’d think the end of the world had arrived. The news reporters were telling everyone to stay inside and demonstrating how you could put socks on your hands if you don’t have gloves. Schools are either closed or on delay. The high today is suppose to hit 43. I know it is serious business to them, but it’s hard for us New Englanders to not laugh out loud. πŸ™‚

        Oh, my! It is hard not to laugh at getting in such a panic over 20 degree weather. A nice winter’s day for us northerners. However, for them it is serious business, so we must try not to laugh. πŸ˜‰ My daughter’s power is back on, thank goodness, but everything has come to a standstill.

    A study in simple geometric beauty – lines both straight and diagonal, perfectly balanced with rectangular shapes in a multitude of sizes. I like how people of all faiths are welcome – in casual dress! What a way to start each week – thanking the Lord for this pristine location!

    • Yes, the simple lines of the church just pull you in. As I was reading the sign and online, I was picturing bowed heads with tank tops, shorts, flip flops, and the scent of suntan lotion. But, does it really matter what one wears when they pray? I don’t think so.


  11. That’s what steeples do – direct your prayers to heaven in the sky.

  12. I love your photo and post. Churches like these always make me feel comforted, and I feel a draw to them, remembering the churches of my childhood. I know not everyone feels the same way, but I do!


  13. I really like the simple symmetry of this building. That yellow door stands out like a welcoming beacon.

    I wonder when it was built? We don’t seem to have this sort of simplicity in the UK (or maybe we have and I just haven’t spotted it!) It’s very pleasant – and so clean! πŸ™‚

    The steeple against the sky is wonderful. You gotta love steeples. The way they rise and dwindle upwards is impossible to ignore. You just have to notice them, even when they rise out of a crowded city. I can certainly see how this one, over that yellow door, commanded your attention. Thanks for the sunny doors and sunny sky on this winter morning!

  21. Blue, white, with a hint of yellow! My favorite color combo. What a sky! You found a lovely door and building to share this week. It’s been gray and raining here. This would be a very cheerful sight!

    Wonderful find Judy. I love the way the yellow just draws in the eye against the all-white facade. And then there’s that steeple πŸ™‚
