Children's Church - Ark-Shaped

There is a sign on the door saying "closed until further notice," which I assume is because of COVID. The landscaping and art has been added to over the years. This is a very cool building!

Children's Church - Ark-Shaped

Driving on our way to the closest Krispy Kreme to the border, we found a children's church shaped like Noah's Ark! The picture on the side shows Noah with all his animals -- way too many bunnies, only one of each of some of the larger animals -- and for some strange reason, he's brought a fish with him. Replete with rocks and sand, this is the coolest church I've ever seen! (We didn't go I can't comment on the inside, but the outside is seriously cool!)
