Church With a Rock In It

Way off the beaten path but a pretty drive. We saw the church at dusk and it was beautiful and creepy. Some bats flew out at us and sacred us pretty bad too. The inside of the church stays lit so you can see the rock pulpit. [Morehub, 06/27/2015]

Church Built Around a Rock

A very interesting place to visit. There is also a cemetery, picnic shelter and walking path. The inside of the church is small but very nice.
