Tiny Chapel

We stopped at several places from Roadside American on our way to Galveston, and this by far was the most disappointing stop. It was a junky mess on the inside of the chapel, and the outside was not much better.

Tiny Chapel - The Church at Texas

Stopped here on drive from Dallas to Houston. Building and grounds are in disrepair. Looks pretty shabby. Disappointing.

Tiny Chapel - The Church at Texas

This site is easily noticed by the number of hand painted signs by the highway saying things like "JESUS WON SATAN LOST" and "COME TO GOD." There are two portions divided by a small pond. The northern side contains a small stage and a gazebo, and the southern side contains the one room chapel, about 20'x15'. The chapel is always open. Outside the chapel is a horse trough converted into a baptismal font.

The congregation itself appears to be very pro-Israel. Inside the chapel are a couple of pews, a row of desks, an Israeli flag, a pulpit (with the King James Bible), a cross and menorah, and a very small organ.
