Traditional in an old fashion way. Lots of dark wood, very open and spacious. Very attractive. Large well kept gardens in back frequently host tea parties. Warm and friendly congregation spanning toddlers to the ancients. A very active church.

The garden is a walk with God.....and then some!! Take some moments from the winding roads, sand dunes and salty air. Say a pray for the Oak trees , the renovations of the Sea Captain's Homes and Hallet's Drug Store.
