If you watch HGTV, you’ve probably heard the term ‘little house.’ Well, I’ve got a little church for you this week.
The Travelers Chapel in Conway, SC, was built in 1972 by Rev. Emory Young, his son, Bruce Young, together with many volunteers from the community. It was financed by Dr. Gaylord Kelly, local businesses and churches, along with many individual donations.
It measures 12′ x 24′, and seats a maximum of 12.
Stopping at the Travelers Chapel is a wonderful opportunity to pause and reflect even for a few moments. This little church with its six pews and beautiful pastel stained glass windows is lovely.
Center stage on the altar is a book where visitors can write prayers or best wishes for safe travels for those coming after them. How nice is that?
The door to The Travelers Chapel is always open. For those with small wedding parties, weddings are free. Donations, however, are gratefully accepted towards the upkeep of the church.
Looking to see a little church for yourself, check the extensive list on Roadside America, where they think the tiniest might be in Oneida, New York.
It was built in 1989, measures 51″ x 81″, seats two, and sits in the middle of a pond. The description of this tiny church just makes me smile.
If you’ve seen any tiny churches for yourself, by all means, let us know, and happy Thursday, this last one of January 2018.
