In the realm of our trip, the “Smallest Church In America” was almost at the end. We stopped here on our way home from Florida but I thought it would be apropos to do this post on Easter Sunday.
This is Christ’s Chapel in Memory Park, located out in the boonies of South Newport, GA. The sign out front states that the church was built in 1949 by Mrs. Anges Harper and deeded to Jesus Christ. The 10′ x 15′ chapel holds twelve people plus the minister. Adding to the character of this little building are stained glass windows that were imported from England. Local ministers still lead non-denominational worship services on the third Sunday of each month.
The church is open 24/7 and as it is located on the Georgia Coast Scenic Byway. If you are ever in the are, be sure to stop. I am not sure that it is really the smallest church in America but I’m pretty sure that it is one of them. Happy Easter.
