Tiny Church - Pause Rest Worship

According to one of the Yuma locals, the church was heavily damaged some years ago during a windstorm that blew it over. A group of locals salvaged what they could and purchased supplies to rebuild it as it stands today. Therefore it doesn't look like it's very old, but it's been around for years. It's just sitting there next to a crop field all by itself. Very cute and serene when you go inside.

A 2001 storm wreaked tiny church havoc. The reconstruction looks much the same as when it was first built in 1995.

Tiny Church - Pause Rest Worship

Sweet little cupcake of a church! It's kept neat and tidy and is a perfect place for a tiny road dog to pull over and say a prayer or make a wish. Stop in and sign the guest book. I think I've found this year's Christmas card photo.

Tiny Church - Peace, Rest, Worship

Stopped by the church after a visit to the Yuma Proving grounds. Had a nice sunset and took photos of the church. Be careful of the pit bull with one ear. Seemed friendly but we didn't want to take that chance to find out. Saw the farmer and his kid and waved.

Tiny Church

There are trees now surrounding this tiny church. A huge sign at the road (easier to see heading south) says the "Pause, Rest, Worship." White sign, blue writing. When we were there in June, there was still an Easter Sunrise Service banner below the sign.

A few pews inside, and a book where you can say hello and tell where you're from. Was HOT at 111 degrees F when we were there so we didn't stay long inside. Also tall "grass" growing all around the area. But easy to drive into the drive and room to park.
