Truckers Chapel.

Truckers Chapel

Tiny church at the largest truck stop I have ever been to. They have mass every Thursday or so and it is the bed of a truck.

Truckers Chapel

The Trucker's Chapels are located at many major truck stops throughout the country. Many actually traveled about at one time. Larger truck stops have church service every Sunday, but most are held in the theaters or T.V. rooms now.

Truckers Chapel.

Truckers Chapel

I found this unique church at the Petro truck stop when I went looking for some cool rigs to photograph. The Truckers Chapel is a converted trailer and sits behind the gas station/convenience store. You absolutely can not see it from the road, I have been there many times and never saw it before so it may be a fairly recent addition. You have to drive or walk back to the semi parking lot area where non-truckers are not supposed to be.
