Tiny Church

I tried to find this tiny church but could not. I stopped at an ice cream store north of Goderich, and also inquired at the Goderich Visitor Centre, but no one at either place had ever heard of it. The young lady working at the ice cream store is from Dunlop and she knew nothing about it. At the visitor center they even looked it up on the Roadside America website, but still they had never heard of it. It has either been moved or the original tipster had the wrong town name.

Tiny Church

A roadside chapel, sponsored by the Christian Reformed Church, offers seating for about five people and even has a little pulpit. To hear a sermon, all you have to do is press a red button at the top of the pulpit and a pre-recorded message plays featuring the pastor of the Christian Reformed Church in Goderich. The message is based on how weary travelers can always find rest and guidance by turning to the Lord Jesus Christ. A guest book inside the chapel has been signed by people from around the world with practically all of them gushing with praise for the roadside structure. The sign to the left says the purpose of the chapel is to offer travelers a place for meditation. The sign also features the great promise from Matthew 11:28 -- "Come unto Me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest."
