Tiny church.

Smallest Church in America

Just off the interstate and easy to visit, this tiny church is still in operation. It is a beautiful area and the church itself is lovely.

Be sure to close the door on your way out so the lights will go off automatically. It appears to be in operation 24 hours a day.

Smallest Church in America

The smallest church I've ever seen. It's kept up well, and the town has great signage to lead you there. There are also a couple of picnic tables under the cool trees -- very relaxing after a long drive.

Even the stained glass windows are cut down to shrimpy church size.

This is a great church to visit! My kids thought it was great. Out in the middle of nowhere, but worth a side trip.

Feb 20, 2010 -- went to the church. It is very clean and neat and easy to find. Apparently, a service was going on earlier that day that we missed.
